Brief Answer:
Antidepressants and anxiolytics may be of help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Wandering in patients with Lewy body dementia is found to improve after anxiolytic and antidepressants drugs use.

Besides wandering other accompanying symptoms may be visual hallucinations, tremor, etc.

Discuss with the Neurologist about drugs to be used in such cases.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.
