HowMoreAlzheimers Disease is now the fourth leading cause of death among the elderly in North America. It is estimated that 300,000 Canadians and 2 million Americans are victims of this mysterious illness.What is Alzheimers Disease? What causes it? How can we recognize it? How do we deal with it if it occurs in our families? Where do we go for assistance?The answers are provided in this comprehensive guide, including causes- symptoms- diagnosis- treatment- legal and financial considerations- caring for the patient- and sensible, sympathetic advice to help the caregiver through this agonizing time. Two case studies dramatically portray the onset, progression, and tragic conclusion of this disease, for which there is no effective treatment and no cure.This indispensable book, however, not only explains how to identify and deal with the illness, but also supplies useful, down-to-earth suggestions to ease the stress and improve the quality of life for families and victims of Alzheimers Disease.
