Summary
You have suspected for a while that you, or a loved one, might have dementia -- and your family doctor has just confirmed this. But they have only ten minutes to tell you everything you need to know about the diagnosis, and it's taken you half that time to take your coat off. This book by a busy working doctor tells you everything you need to know about dementia and its various forms. It will help you to understand what happens to the brain when it develops Alzheimer's Disease (or other forms of dementia) and what the treatment possibilities are. It explains what to expect with symptoms, suggests some non-pharmacological approaches to managing the condition, and covers such practicalities as driving, making your home safe and giving or receiving Power of Attorney where necessary. Covering Alzheimer's Disease, vascular dementia, Dementia with Lewy Bodies and all the other major neurogenerative conditions, this book is packed with information, written with a light, wry humour, and answers all the questions that you didn't know you had until you left the surgery
