about this item

Mace, a retired consultant to the Alzheimer's Association who was an assistant in psychiatry at Johns Hopkins U., and Rabins (Alzheimer disease and related disorders, Johns Hopkins U.) offer a guide for people caring for someone with dementia. They address evaluation and treatment; behavioral and mood symptoms; independent living, daily care, and medical problems; how to get outside help; family issues, effects of dementia on the caregiver and self-care; tips for children and teens; financial and legal issues, including Medicare and Medicaid (updated for this edition); and research areas. This edition has revised chapters on causes, managing the early stages, and finding appropriate living arrangements when home care is no longer an option, and a new chapter on preventing or delaying cognitive decline. The material on less common causes such as frontotemporal lobar dementia and Lewy body dementia has been expanded. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
