De ziekte van Alzheimer is net zo slopend voor familieleden en verzorgers als voor de dementerende pesoon zelf. Het is immers ook de omgeving van de patiënt die voortdurend in het reine dient te komen met verregaande emotionele en fysieke belasting. Dit handboek leert artsen tussen dergelijke interpersoonlijke problemen te navigeren. Wat is de beste methode om te werken met de familie en vrienden van de dementerende patiënt? Dit gaat van het duidelijk informeren over symptomen en risico's, het communiceren van gevoelige onderwerpen tot het met mededogen beantwoorden van vragen en verwachtingen. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393705773, Hardcover)

Responding to families’ questions and fears with compassion.

Typically the patient—and his or her course of treatment—are the natural focal points when it comes to Alzheimer’s disease (AD). But Alzheimer’s is an equally debilitating illness for family members and caregivers who must come to terms with its far-reaching emotional and physical burdens.

In this handbook, clinicians are taught how to navigate the many interpersonal issues at the heart of AD—that is, how to work with the families and friends of the patient. Santulli addresses everything from how to respond compassionately to their likely questions and concerns, how to clearly explain symptoms and risk factors, when to suggest consultation with a geriatric specialist, and how to sensitively
discuss issues of long-term treatment and care.
