What is Lewy bodies?
Lewy bodies, named for their discoverer Fritz Heinrich Lewy, are small deposits of protein that develop inside nerve cells. They can lead to dementia, as well as Parkinson’s disease and other disorders.
It is a less understood area of dementia, but those diagnosed can benefit from similar care and support as most other forms. Though there is currently no cure, those with Lewy bodies can be supported in their daily life at facilities like Highpoint Care.
