Abstract: This guide is designed to help non-professionals understand dementia and its effects on your mind, the differences between dementia and changes associated with normal aging, and how to improve memory and maintain good mental function. Part 1 provides an overview of dementia, the physical and mental changes that occur in normal aging, and the process of diagnosing dementia. Part 2 focuses on Alzheimer’s disease, including how it develops, its stages, diagnosis, biological basis, and treatment. Part 3 discusses non-Alzheimer’s forms of dementia, including frontotemporal dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies, vascular cognitive impairment, and others. Part 4 highlights the latest information in such areas as mild cognitive impairment, ways to stay mentally sharp, and research trends. The book also provides a 100-plus-page Action Guide for Caregivers, with tips and strategies for caring for a loved one with dementia and caring for oneself.
