The first part of this important book offers a comparison of the normal aging pattern of the brain and what happens with Alzheimer's. It explains the difficulties of diagnosis, risk factors for developing it, treatments, and guidelines for prevention. The second part is devoted to practical ways that families can help the patient, including adapting to changing relationships, establishing new ways of communication and decision-making, and planning for the future. The last part offers advice for self-care for family members and helpers, from joining a support group to exploring spiritual resource.
