Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When you care for someone with Alzheimer's Disease, you need all the sound advice and support you can possibly get. Finding ways to meet your own needs as well as those of the person for whom you care is a daily challenge that raises questions on a range of topics. This book combines the medical expertise of a medical doctor with the practical wisdom of an experienced caregiver into an easily accessible guide, a constant and faithful companion for anyone working with Alzheimer's sufferers.

Alzheimer's A to Z is organized like an encyclopedia, in a convenient alphabetical format that allows you to find the information you need when you need it. Practical entries treat subjects like dressing, transporting, and talking with people with Alzheimer's. Discussions of medical and neurological aspects of the disease treat topics like the functions of short and long-term memory systems. Psychological entries explore emotional and communication issues related to Alzheimer's care. Each entry is engagingly written in direct, uncomplicated language that makes even difficult concepts easy to understand. The tone of the book is positive and constructive, making it as easy to give as it is to read.

Synopsis:

A neurologist who specializes in the treatment of Alzheimer's, and a woman who has been a caregiver for Alzheimer's patients for ten years, team up to write this first ever A to Z caregiver's guide.
