Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) Evaluation
Early Detection and Management: Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) Assessment at Thought Wise
At Thought Wise in Jacksonville, Florida, we understand the critical importance of early detection and management of neurocognitive disorders, including Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB). If you or your loved one is experiencing difficulties with multitasking, concentration, memory functioning, decision making, or comprehension, it may be time to consider a Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) assessment. Regular screenings for memory problems and neurocognitive disorders are particularly recommended for those over the age of 65.
Understanding Dementia with Lewy Bodies
Dementia with Lewy Bodies is a significant neurocognitive disorder, second only to Alzheimer’s disease in terms of prevalence. DLB shares similarities with Parkinson’s disease and can have a profound impact on the quality of life. Key symptoms include:
- Sleep disturbances.
- Vivid hallucinations.
- Fluctuating cognitive abilities.
- Decline in attention and cognition.
- Behavioral disturbances and confusion.
- Sensory impairment.
- Reduced executive functioning.
The Importance of Early Screening
Regular screenings and further testing, when necessary, are crucial for early intervention, which can significantly improve outcomes. At Thought Wise, we offer quick screenings for those at high risk of dementia and comprehensive evaluations for more in-depth analysis.
Building Cognitive Resilience
Cognitive reserve is a concept that refers to the mind’s resilience against the symptoms of dementia and other neuropsychological issues. By engaging in cognitive fitness activities throughout life, individuals can build a buffer against the effects of disorders like DLB.
