A practicing GP has ten brief minutes to tell you everything you need to know about the disease he or she has just diagnosed. Sometimes it takes people half that time just to take their coat off. Research has shown that most people remember only one or two things said to them in a consultation.
At a time of an ever-aging population, and an increasing burden of Alzheimer's, the most common form of dementia, means an increasing need for reliable information. This book by a GP covers all aspects of Alzheimer's, from early subtle signs to the full-blown disease, with an emphasis on everyday management. The book aims to help those with Alzheimer's understand a little more about their disease, how they can help themselves and their loved ones, and what treatments are on offer. It also looks at some future developments in the treatment of Alzheimer's.
