For those who are more comfortable speaking by phone instead of searching our website, experienced former LBD caregivers will offer personal help to callers on a daily basis and can direct them to local services. In addition to their ability to provide information on all topics available on our website, our helpline personnel can address individual issues and advise ways to best handle them. Since many health care professionals don’t know the disease, lack of information is a serious challenge for families, which adds significant stress to an already difficult situation. WE ARE HERE TO HELP!
