Rehabilitation of patients with Lewy body dementia

Lewy body dementia is a degenerative and progressive pathology of the brain that shares common symptoms with Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s.

Lewy body dementia can be complex to diagnose because of the variation in symptoms it presents.

The most common Lewy body dementia symptoms are:

  • Visual hallucinations (usually present from the onset of symptoms)
  • Loss of verbal fluence
  • Cognitive fluctuation.
  • Tremor, stiffness and slowness of movement (frequently associated with Parkinson’s disease).

How does Neural help a patient with Lewy body dementia?

Dementia intervention is based on improving the quality of life of the patient and their close environment.

Neural’s medical and therapeutic team establishes specific diagnostic and treatment programs, as well as respite care measures that are adjusted according to the needs of each person.

The diagnosis involves making an exhaustive analysis of the patient’s medical history, neuropsychological examination of cognitive functions and evaluation with neuroimaging study.

Starting a pharmacological and therapeutic treatment from the early stages of the disease substantially improves the quality of life of the patient and his family, who, from that moment, understands the disease and can make available to the patient the appropriate resources at all times.
