Alzheimer's disease affects 4 million Americans. As the proportion of elderly in our population increases, the devastating illness will afflict as many as 14 million Americans by 2050.
Since this title was first published in 1998, research and treatment of Alzheimer's have progressed, offering a new understanding of the disease and hope for patients and their loved ones. This revised edition includes the latest developments in the care and treatment of Alzheimer's patients, and provides advice on how families can cope.
