I read a more recent update than this 2006 edition. Provided comprehensive information. It tended to refer to the Alzheimer's Association a lot for more information. I tried the local chapter and found it didn't provide many of the resources referred to in the book but am sure that is different depending on where one lives. Well worth the read. I did skip sections that were not relevant to my particular situation. ( )

Guide for families of individuals with Dementia of Alzheimers Type ( )

This book was updated to a fifth edition in 2011. It is primarily about Alzheimer's and dementias in general, and does not really address the type my mother has (FTD-PPA). The first eight chapters define dementia and discuss getting medical help, characteristic behavioral symptoms of the disease (two chapters), problems in independent living and daily care, and medical problems and symptoms that appear as changes in mood. The next six chapters focus more on the caregiver and the family. The last five chapters address financial and legal issues, nursing homes and other living arrangements (but not really the settings that have come to be known as "memory care"), preventing or delaying cognitive decline, and more detail on brain disorders and causes of and research in dementia. Although it is now somewhat outdated, I was glad to receive a mass-market paperback copy of this book for reference. ( )
