“Your husband has Lewy Body Disease. It has elements of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.” How do you cope when you hear those horrible words? Are there medicines that can help with symptoms? Is there no hope? If your loved one is in the early stage, there is hope. As a caregiver there are things you can do for a person with degenerative cognitive disease to make your daily lives better. There may even be blessings you never thought could happen to you in this journey. This book is about that very thing. It is real. It happened. Some of it happened because of the choices made by a caregiver who would not settle for a “gloom and doom life is all over” approach. It is a first of its kind. There is no other book that addresses the topic of enhancing and extending the early stage of LBD. If you are an early stage caregiver, this story may help you. It has tips on how to make a difference.
