“Prevention and Care of Alzheimer’s Disease” (ISBN 1461170257), a guide for caregivers and patients by registered nurse Lavonne Steckbeck, offers information to aid in understanding and effective care for those facing the disease. This book differs from others on the topic of Alzheimer’s in that its focus is not clinical but rather on providing helpful guidance to improve the experience of those suffering from the disease as well as their caregivers. It describes best practices for assessment, diagnosis, care, and prevention of abuse for Alzheimer’s patients. Special sections for caregivers set forth the difficulties they face and provide advice to deal effectively with an emotionally stressful experience. “I nursed my husband through his long battle with Alzheimer’s and know from experience that there is not enough information readily available to improve prevention and care,” says Steckbeck. “I wrote this book to address that need.” Drawing on both the experience of caring for her husband and more than 40 years as a registered nurse, Steckbeck weaves personal narrative with insights from research to provide a valuable tool for patients and caregivers. "A very insteresting primer on AD. This is just the kind of information needed to reach out to the public, says Dr. H. Murray Todd, M.D. FAAN. "This is a must-read material for anyone dealing with A.D., including those at an academic level, says Dr. Andy Mencia, CMD.
