A diagnosis of Lewy Body Dementia (Lewy Body Dementia) does not necessarily mean you cannot make or be involved in decisions about your life. Your autonomy, individuality and rights are very important and should be protected and respected. You are entitled to both your privacy and confidentiality. Not everyone likes to discuss their business whether that be personal or medical.
However your level of independence will decrease as time goes on. In order to remain as safe and well as possible, you may need to consider some adjustments over time. Involving people in changes you experience and sharing problems with others will ultimately help you face new challenges that this condition will present. No single way or approach is best when it comes to living with Lewy Body Dementia but we recommend being open to learning a new way of dealing with the challenges.
It is important to be optimistic yet practical. It is okay to ask for help. Below we mention some general tips that may be useful for both the person with Lewy Body Dementia and their family. Also there are some links for organisations and websites that have further information.
