Synopsis: Six million people in the United States are now Alzheimer caregivers, but their ranks could double in coming years as the number of older people at risk for developing Alzheimer's Disease rises drastically. While more research is being done on this disease, new caregivers remain in desperate need of helpful suggestions and emotional support. Caring for the Alzheimer Patient received broad critical acclaim as an important contribution to the limited literature on this devastating disease. The overwhelming support for a third edition indicates the continuing urgent need to deliver important information to countless caregivers, families, and skilled care workers who are indirectly affected by Alzheimer's.

This essential volume, now greatly revised to include the latest research and information on the disease, contains chapters by highly qualified experts on the medical aspects of the dementia caused by Alzheimer's; optimal living environments for Alzheimer patients; techniques for enhancing memory, orientation, and communication in Alzheimer patients; selecting appropriate nursing homes; the benefits of support groups for Alzheimer families; the reliability of newsmaking research and so-called medical breakthroughs; and more.

About the Author: Raye Lynne Dippel, Ph.D. (Colorado Springs, CO) is a clinical psychologist in private practice. J. Thomas Hutton, M.D., Ph.D. (Lubbock, TX) is in the private practice of neurology and directs the Neurology Research Center at St. Mary of the Plains Hospital in Lubbock.
