Seniors who have been diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia will ultimately need around-the-clock care as the condition advances. Finding the best care for a loved one who has dementia is challenging, and it's difficult to see their condition worsen. These days, assisted living facilities are becoming more popular, and many families make the decision to place a loved one there.

What is Lewy Body Dementia?
A large number of elderly people in the Annapolis Valley suffer from Lewy Body Dementia, the second most prevalent type of degenerative dementia.

- Short and long-term memory loss
- Loss of executive function
- Confusion and agitation
- Visual hallucinations
- Mobility issues such as tremors and slowed movement
- Decreased regulation of bodily functions, including blood pressure, digestion and sweating
- Difficulties sleeping, including physically acting out dreams
