Hi my mum was initially diagnosed with Alzheimers…..but now the general concensus based on symptoms is LBD. So can I ask if I should have different expectations? She can change with her symptoms and issues on a sixpence. I care for her full time. The latest thing with her is actually getting her out of bed, she used to be up at 8-9 but now it is more like lunchtime, is this 'normal' and do I let her lie in?

Hi Hazel
Welcome to CUK, I can't answer your question as my father had Vascular Dementia rather than LBD but there are a couple of links which may be of help to you.
