Excerpt From Book

Affecting more than 5 million Americans over the age of 65, Alzheimer's disease is the most common kind of dementia. This condition attacks the brain and progressively takes its ability to remember recent events and perform simple activities of daily living. Alzheimer's is degenerative, having no cure, and it eventually leads to death.

Alzheimer's is not a normal part of the aging process and so, does not affect every older person. Furthermore, its signs and symptoms are far more devastating than occasionally misplacing keys or forgetting the name of a new neighbor. Ongoing research into Alzheimer's seems to indicate a hereditary component, but definitive answers to the complexities of the condition remain to be discovered.

Individuals coping with Alzheimer's, and their caregivers, need a network of support and a comprehensive guide to help them live day-to-day. The content of this book provides ideas and suggestions for all concerned at every stage of this difficult disease. For instance, what happens before and after diagnosis of Alzheimer's? What should the care plan look like? And probably one of the most important issues is addressed: is a caregiver in place?
