Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias
by Gerry Bennett
This guide explains the terminology, describes the symptoms, explains the causes and effects of memory loss and the differences between chronic and acute confusion, Alzheimer's Disease, and other forms of dementia.
Alzheimer's Disease and dementia are often used as blanket terms to describe any state of confusion in the elderly. They are often wrongly regarded as the inevitable results of growing old. In fact, problems such as memory loss, disorientation and difficulties in communication are frequently the symptoms of illnesses that can be treated effectively after prompt diagnosis. This book explains the terminology, describes the symptoms, explains the causes and effects of memory loss and the differences between chronic and acute confusion, Alzheimer's Disease, and other forms of dementia. This new, revised edition includes updated chapter explaining: how to make the most of health and social services; the role of memory clinics; where to find professional and informal support; care for the carer and the sensitive issue of abuse of the elderly.
