Alzheimer's Disease Summary

Alzheimer's Disease by Paul Dash

An estimated 5 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer's Disease, only half of whom have been diagnosed. An uncertain but even larger number have mild cognitive impairment, often a precursor to Alzheimer's. By 2030, barring a cure for this illness, the number of individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease is estimated to be 8 million, and by 2050, 14 million. The cost in both suffering and dollars on the part of patients and families is enormous and continues to grow worldwide.

Alzheimer's Disease provides an overview of the latest findings regarding the cause, diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer's Disease. It will help caregivers and family members gain a better understanding of the nature of the disease process and the available options for coping with and managing this illness. Chapters include an introduction to Dementia and Alzheimer's disease, ageing; memory; depression; medications; alternative treatments; stages and prognosis of the disease; a chapter for caregivers and much more. The subtitles of each chapter are written in question format to help readers search for the topics that most relate to their problem. To further help navigate this book, references are organised by topic and chapter at the end of the book. In addition, all abbreviations are listed in a table at the beginning of the book and words that appear in the glossary are italicised upon their first occurrence in the text. This latest volume in the American Academy of Neurology Press Quality of Life Guide series is an essential tool for all families coping with Alzheimer's Disease.

Alzheimer's Disease Reviews

The book is a well written, informative and accessible source of information and guidance about Alzheimer's disease...I recommend it not only for caregivers but for anyone that wants a book to provide them with a way that makes even the most complicated information understandable and

This book provides an excellent summary of the current knowledge surrounding Alzheimer's disease...I would thoroughly recommend this book to all patients, carers, family doctors, and ancillary staff involved with these patients...As a carer, I found the book very positive. --The Lancet

There is a lot of good material in here and the strength of the book is that it makes the material easily accessible...I would recommend this book most to people working with dementia patients who want an accessible and up to the minute commentary of what is happening in the field. -- Journal of Alzheimer's Disease

This is a useful pocket edition for neurologists and general physicians.-- World Neurology
