Hello to all,
 
I am new to this group but not to HealingWell. I have been on the Prostate Cancer forum for almost a year.
 
On behalf of a dear friend, I am interested to know if anyone has any information on treatments for the Lewy Body form of dementia or can you direct me to sites that might be helpful. Thanks,
 
Joe

Another good resource is A Psychiatrist With Lewy Body Dementia - http://knittingdoc.wordpress.com/ The author of the blog acually has Lewy Body Disease, and is no longer able to write very often. However, there is a wealth of useful information on the site from the past. On the right column, you'll also notice a link to a Lewy Body Yahoo group. I don't know how active it is but it is worth checking into it.
