For caregivers, understanding common behavior changes of person’s living with Lewy Body Dementia (LBD) is important. A person with LBD may need help with planning their day and remembering appointments or even simple tasks like dressing and bathing. As the disease progresses, a person with LBD may become frustrated, anxious or embarrassed by their cognitive decline. A caregiver may need to provide emotional and physical support, as well as encouragement. Individuals with LBD may become restless, experience rapid mood swings, or wander. Knowing how to balance a person’s safety and independence becomes more difficult as the disease progresses.
