Clinical care and unmet needs of individuals with dementia with Lewy bodies and caregivers: an interview study.
Investigators researched the clinical care preferences of individuals living with dementia and caregivers, particularly dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). Twenty individuals with DLB and 25 caregivers were interviewed via a semistructured questionnaire. The investigators concluded that improving care for individuals with DLB and their families will require a multipronged strategy including education for non-specialist care providers, increasing specialty care access, improved clinical care services, research to support disease prognosis and treatment decisions, and local and national strategies for enhanced caregiver support.
