Publisher Comments:

An easy and accessible introduction to dealing with dementia, designed for sufferers and caretakers alike

Millions of people across the world—including one in eight older Americans—suffer from dementia, and millions more are affected by the affliction through someone they know or love. Further complicating matters, dementia is not a single disease, but rather a non-specific illness syndrome—i.e., set of signs and symptoms—in which affected areas of cognition may be memory, attention, language, and problem solving. Due to these complexities as well as the mass amount of sufferers, there is a clear need for people to understand the condition better. Explaining what dementia may mean both in the long term and in the way of day-to-day life, this indespensible guide explains what can be done to improve the mental health of sufferers. Including medication, lifestyle changes, and treatment centers, it covers every possible facet of dementia care in an accessible and compassionate manner.
