Living with Dementia: A Guide for Professionals and Carers by John Riordan
Like all the books in the "Living with..." series the authors are clinicians with a sceptical approach to drug-based treatment of chronic ailments. This book aims to provide a summary of the non-pharmaceutical treatment of elderly, confused people. The book contains criticism of current treatment of the elderly both within institutions and in society at large and is intended for use by professional groups and the intelligent lay reader or carer. It includes chapters on the functioning of the brain and causation and describes potential problems caused by the effect of drugs.
