Understanding Alzheimer's is a practical guide for the hundreds of thousands of Australians dealing with this extremely challenging condition. Each week, 1500 Australians are diagnosed with Alzheimer's or a dementia-related illness. This timely book answers many of the common questions asked by carers, patients and the public, including: À How is Alzheimer's diagnosed? À Is it possible to prevent and/or slow down the disease? À What are the risk factors for contracting Alzheimer's? À What are the best current treatments, and what is the research telling us about new treatments? À How can diet, physical activity and mental exercise be used to help manage the disease? À What are the emotional and legal issues around caring for someone with Alzheimer's? Drawing on some of Australia's top experts in the field, and containing numerous personal stories and a section on where to get help, this guide offers the best and latest medical information as well as compassionate and reassuring advice for those whose lives are affected by Alzheimer's.
