Post Welcome to LBDA's Discussion Forums - Read this post first!!
If you are a first time visitor, we are glad you are here! This is an excellent place to share your questions on LBD, and pass along any caregiving tips and LBD information that has helped you along the way. Please read the forum guidelines found here: http://community.lbda.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=947 and then browse the different forums on Symptoms and Diagnosis, Behavioral Issues, and Medications. Don’t forget our Respite Room is available for any non-LBD topics as well!

We have listed a number of publications on LBD at the bottom of this posting, to help you find information on LBD as quickly as possible.

Please remember that this forum is a caregiver-to-caregiver resource, and is NOT intended as a substitute for professional medical advice. Any suggestions you read here regarding diagnosis or treatment options (including those provided by LBDA volunteers) should be discussed with your doctor, to find out if it is appropriate for your particular situation.

The forum moderator is Irene Selak, who works hard to make all members feel welcome and keeps the forum free from spam. (Please do let her know if someone is posting links to commercial or inappropriate sites, so she can delete the post and notify LBDA.)

In hope,

Angela Taylor
