(VIERA, FL) September 20, 2021 – For the million Americans affected by Parkinson’s disease, another prospect may lie in wait: Lewy body dementia. On Monday, October 4 at 10:00 AM, One Senior Place in Viera will present the facts about the progressive memory disorder during Diagnosis: Lewy Body Dementia. The marketplace of senior resources at 8085 Spyglass Hill Road will welcome Dr. Anthony LoGalbo, Board Certified Clinical Neuropsychologist and Director of Clinical Neuropsychology for the Health First Florida Memory Disorder Clinic and an Associate Professor at Florida Tech. Dr. LoGalbo will discuss the connection between Lewy body dementia and Parkinson’s disease, along with the latest findings and treatments. Lewy body dementia is the second most common type of progressive dementia after Alzheimer’s disease. To RSVP for Diagnosis: Lewy Body Dementia, call One Senior Place, The Experts in Aging at 321-751-6771.
Dr. LoGalbo, who teaches graduate classes at Florida Tech, specializes in the assessment and treatment of patients with memory disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases or dementias. With Lewy body dementia, protein deposits (Lewy bodies) develop in nerve cells in the brain regions involved in thinking, memory and movement. It most often affects men over the age of 60.
“Part of what makes this condition particularly unique is the wide spectrum of symptoms someone might experience: trouble with thinking and memory, difficulties walking and moving, and having peculiar experiences such as seeing things that are not really there. It is important for patients and families to be aware that all of these symptoms can be part of the disease.”
Barbara Fradkin, Director of One Senior Place in Viera, knows the information presented during Diagnosis: Lewy Body Dementia will be a source of strength and hope for patients and their families.
“Every scrap of new information about Lewy body dementia is one more tool a family can use to care for their loved ones,” said Fradkin. “Dr. LoGalbo is a very experienced doctor in this field; we are glad he is coming to One Senior Place to tell us about the latest research and treatments.”
Diagnosis: Lewy Body Dementia is co-presented by the Brevard Parkinson’s Support Group, representing many of the 4,000 Brevard residents living with Parkinson’s disease.
