Minding Our Elders: Mom’s dementia difficult for visitorsDEAR CAROL: My mom is 83 and has Lewy body dementia. She’s lived with me just under a year and it’s going well except for when she has visitors. I’m happy that some of her old friends want to come by and see her. I’m also aware that she’s hard to visit with because her attention span is shrinking and her memory is getting worse.
