Answer

This type of dementia produces symptoms such as causing disruption of perception, thinking and behavior. The hallmark symptoms of this dementia are more psychotic in nature, such as hallucinations and delusions, and symptoms that are similar to those of Parkinson's disease, such as stiffness and rigidity, frozen stance, balance difficulties and tremors. However, as in many diseases, the symptoms can manifest themselves differently depending on the individual and similar to Alzheimer's disease, the rate of decline varies for each individual, though the average duration for LBD is approximately 5 to 7 years.
