Raise crucially needed awareness of Lewy body dementia through the dissemination of information to health care professionals and the general public. Offer loving support and services to people with LBD and their care partners. Promote essential scientific advances.
The Lewy Body Dementia Resource Center (LBDRC), a charitable 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was created to provide much needed resources and assistance to those with Lewy body dementia and their care partners.
The founder and leaders of LBDRC are former care partners of loved ones with Lewy body dementia, so we understand the experience, and are here with loving support to help you through it.
In advance of finding a cure, our vision is to foster early diagnosis and enhance the quality of life for people with Lewy Body Dementia and their care partners with an all-inclusive website, call center, and devoted care. We advocate for increased funding and research for Lewy body dementia and promote essential scientific advances and research.
Through outreach and speaking engagements, our mission is to educate the healthcare community and the general public about Lewy body dementia symptoms and prognosis. We believe that awareness of this little known condition will help improve the quality of life for those with LBD, their caregivers, and loved ones.
Lewy body dementia is the second most common form of progressive dementia and affects more than 1.4 million Americans. It is widely misdiagnosed as it can mimic Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, or a psychiatric disorder. As diagnoses are rapidly growing and there is very little assistance, the need for local help has become increasingly clear.
