The Lewy Body Society, Edinburgh (Lewy Body Society)

Summary

The Lewy Body Society is a registered charity which funds research into Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB). The charity was founded to raise awareness about this disease and how it differs from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease (with which Lewy Body sufferers often share symptoms). They also aim to provide a community focus for people who suffer from DLB, their carers and families.

Their website (http://lewybody.org) provides information to help readers understand the disease and its effects. There are links to groups working in aspects of dementia care and research, and to important information sources and books.
