Post New LBD Caregiver Blog- Mum, Me and Lewy Body
This blog was started in November 2009 by Gilli whose 80-year-old mother may have Lewy Body Dementia. I believe they live in the UK. The family is dealing with many behavioral issues. The mother is currently in a hospital; I don't know if this is a skilled nursing facility or a psychiatric ward.

Here's a brief excerpt:
"It seems that this illness became noticeable in Sept 2008 after going on a cruise... A brief spell in hospital followed a 'passing out' not unconscious, aware of what was said around her but not responding to anyone.Various tests followed ...perhaps a small stroke or TIA it was thought, perhaps vascular dementia but as time has passed it is thought that it is Lewy Body dementia. "

If you do a search on the LBDA Forum of posts with:
keyword - blog
author - robin
...you will find most of the available blogs. (You will miss the ones that others have posted about.) There must be at least 10 blogs by now.

You can also scan the "Practical Caregiving Tips" sub-forum as when I post about a new blog it's usually in this area. (I think I posted about one in the Financial/Social Resources sub-forum because of the nature of that particular blog.)

I think Victoria on the LBDcaregivers Yahoo!Group has a separate section in the "Links" area that lists blogs.
