If someone you love has just been diagnosed
with Alzheimer’s, you may not know where to turn.
According to author Daniel Kuhn, the early stages of
Alzheimer’s can be the most difficult time for relatives and
friends because they often don’t know much about the disease,
or how they can be of help.
This highly practical book
fills the information gap. It is divided into three sections:
how Alzheimer’s begins—causes and early symptoms; how to help a loved
one with the disease; and how families and caregivers can help themselves.
The new edition contains updated information on risk factors, treatments and
potential means of prevention. Also included is information about two new
drugs approved since 1999 and the decision by the federal government to
cover the cost of counseling and other health related services through
Medicare. Resources are updated, and the National Family Caregiver Support
Program, enacted in 1999, is explained.
