Sample text

Memory losses usually accompany other losses, such as a decrease in thinking and communication skills and a general slowness of thought. Thinking We use thinking skills for planning, learning, reasoning, and doing sequential tasks. Sometimes these skills are called executive abilities. Executive abilities: • Give our perceptions meaning, • Allow us to be rational, • Help us do more than one task at a time, • Help us do a series of tasks, • Let us plan ahead, and • Allow us to learn new skills. People with LBD tend to lose their thinking skills sooner than do people with AD.

17 First, let us talk about whom you should not choose. If your loved one has been exhibiting some of the behavioral symptoms of LBD, such as hallucinations or angry outbursts, your primary physician might suggest a psychiatrist. LBD caregivers view this as a very poor choice because psychiatrists tend to focus on the behavioral symptoms rather than the neurological issues that cause the behavior problems in LBD. They also tend to prescribe the very drugs that are most dangerous to someone with LBD.

And not just, “This is what we are doing now,” although, of course, I do that too. Mom doesn’t talk much anymore, but I think she understands a lot of what I’m saying.

Clara will respond better to everything if she is included—treated like the adult she is. In addition, the effort that Clara makes to understand what Marion says strengthens her mental abilities.
