Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) is often misdiagnosed. To assist with diagnosis, the Lewy Body Dementia Association (LBDA) has developed a tool to help patients, caregivers and healthcare providers when assessing symptoms.

The LBDA has also produced a more comprehensive checklist, to assist in the recognition and recording of symptoms, and thereby to facilitate information-sharing between family carers and medical staff.
