According to recent statistics Alzheimer disease affects more than 5 million Americans. Medical researchers do not fully understand what causes it, and there is no cure. Alzheimer Disease Sourcebook, Fourth Edition provides updated information about Alzheimer disease and other types of dementia, including multi infarct dementia, frontotemporal dementia, Binswanger disease, Huntington disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, and Wernicke Korsakoff syndrome. It explains recent advances made in understanding the causes of dementing disorders, improvements made in diagnostic procedures, and discoveries that have helped identify potential treatments. For people newly diagnosed with Alzheimer disease, it offers information about coping with mental changes and long term planning. For caregivers, it offers suggestions about many practical aspects of daily life, including planning activities, managing behavior problems, and helping people with dementia maintain their skills. A glossary and directories of resources provide additional help and information.
