Dementia with Lewy bodies

Dementia with Lewy bodies is the third most common cause of dementia.

Living with DLB can present challenges, but there are organisations that can offer help and support.

The Lewy Body Society, in partnership with Parkinson’s UK, provides support and advice for people with DLB, their families and carers. You can contact a helpline advisor on 0808 800 0303 or by emailing hello@parkinsons.org.uk and find information at www.lewybody.org and www.parkinsons.org.uk

For contact details of other organisations offering support and advice, visit our section on support for people affected by dementia. You can also speak to your doctor or nurse.
