Mayo Clinic on Alzheimer’s Disease is completely updated based on the patient care experience and research of Mayo doctors. The book brings you the latest, most effective treatment approaches we know and is a must-read for every caregiver. Actively managing Alzheimer’s and other conditions that cause dementia can significantly improve quality of life, both for the person with the condition and for his or her caregiver. This book is full of new discoveries we’re eager to pass on to you. For example, Mayo Clinic on Alzheimer’s Disease tells you about advances in brain research that allow doctors to detect the condition in its earliest stages. This gives us hope for unraveling some of the real mysteries surrounding the disease. A critical development in medical technology is the ability to detect plaques in the living brain through molecular imaging. With this breakthrough, it’s now possible to track progress of the disease and the effects of medication therapy on a patient. Many Alzheimer’s patients can be helped by treating their coexisting conditions, such as depression, anxiety or a sleep disorder. Often, treating these conditions results in improved general health and potentially even better cognition. If you are the friend, loved one, or caregiver of someone with Alzheimer’s, this book is a must-read. You’ll learn about treatment goals, medications, strategies to deal with changing behaviors, and best ways to approach advanced or severe cases.
