The Experience of Alzheimer's Disease PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Experience of Alzheimer's Disease free pdf At a time when the incidence of Alzheimer's Disease is increasing dramatically, this accessible account revolutionizes our stereotypes of people with Alzheimer's Disease and their care. Written to appeal to general readers as well as professionals and students, it shows what sufferers can still do despite the loss of certain cognitive abilities, and offers constructive ways to improve the relationship between sufferers and healthy others. Rather than focusing on the etiology or treatment of Alzheimer's Disease, the author helps the reader to understand the psychology behind it. Getting away from a traditional scientific-medical focus on symptoms, the book brings to life the experience of suffering the disease, and the ways in which caregivers can identify and support the intact abilities of those afflicted.
