Looking for Lewy Body Dementia

DIAGNOSIS: CHECKLIST

A free tool by the Lewy Body Dementia Association helps patients, family and professionals identify symptoms quickly and easily. Find out more and download the tool.


Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) is the most misdiagnosed form of dementia. 80% of people are initally misdiagnosed, 50% of the time as Alzheimer’s. It is one of the two forms of Lewy Body Dementia (LBD).

To help solve this problem, the checklist at the link below is designed to help patients identify symptoms.

A second page is included for physicians, which includes the criteria for diagnosing dementia with Lewy bodies.

While LBD also has many other symptoms, this abbreviated symptom checklist only focuses on those that help to diagnose LBD.

This free patient checklist from the Lewy Body Dementia Association can be downloaded and printed for unlimited use by both medical practices and individuals who want to discuss LBD with their doctor.

This site was inspired by my Mom’s autoimmune dementia.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chafe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. Google gets a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia every 7 minutes. That can overwhelm anyone looking for help. This site filters out, focuses on and offers only the best information. it has helped hundreds of thousands of people since it debuted in 2007. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
