Publisher's Summary

It can be terrifying to witness a loved one's cognitive decline. But for millions of families around the world, that fear becomes reality year after year. Researchers estimate that more than 150 million people around the world could be living with dementia by 2050. While there is currently no known cure for dementia, Mayo Clinic on Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias combines the latest research on preventive methods, current treatment options, and advice for living well with dementia to help those affected by the disease.   

Traditionally, very little has been known about Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementias. But recent advances in medical research shine a light on information previously unknown about these debilitating diseases.  

In the seventh edition of Mayo Clinic on Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias, expert neurologists from the Mayo Clinic organize this new research into a thorough and digestible guidebook that provides caregivers with the most up-to-date information regarding the disease. The book presents a comprehensive look at the typical symptoms associated with dementia and current findings regarding common causes of the disease, and gives essential tips for managing the day-to-day challenges of caring for someone with dementia.  

While Alzheimer's disease is the most well-known type of dementia, Mayo Clinic on Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias also touches on other types of dementia like Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal degeneration, and vascular cognitive impairment - and how these conditions are frequently developed. Additionally, this book provides a transparent look at the neurological changes that can occur within a dementia patient's brain and details how to differentiate between the signs of normal aging versus aging with dementia. Though dementia-related diseases are one of the fastest-growing epidemics in the world, Mayo Clinic on Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias provides an invaluable reference guide on dementia, helping bring peace of mind to those affected by the disease and their caretakers.
