The Caregivers Guide to Lewy Body Dementia by award winning authors Helen and James Whitworth is the first book to present a thorough picture of Lewy body dementia in everyday language.
Managing Cognitive Issues in Parkinson's & Lewy Body Dementia discusses the connections shared with Lewy body dementia and Parkinson's, mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer's and other neurological disorders. In addition, the book explains the sensitivity problems often found with many drugs commonly used with dementia while offering a multitude of non-drug options for enhanced care.
This trio pack is rounded out with Riding a Rollercoaster With Lewy Body Dementia, the Whitworth's manual for caregivers of LBD patients.
