Lewy body article

""Right now more than 10.9 million Americans are caring for someone with Alzheimer's or dementia. Worldwide, the number of Alzheimer's cases is expected to double by 2030." Beth Macy.

The O - Oprah Magazine, March 2011, has an article about someone descending into Lewy body dementia. It is the first article I have read specific to Lewy Body Dementia. While it is written by someone who does not spend a lot of time with the woman, it is interesting, nevertheless, in catching the unique characteristics of Lewy body dementia. It is called "Before I Forget", and it could be a good article for family or friends who want to better understand this disease.
