Synopsis: With the aging of the baby boomers and medical advances that promote longevity, older adults are rapidly becoming the fastest growing segment of the population. As the population ages, so does the incidence of age related disorders. Many predict that 15% - 20% of the baby-boomer generation will develop some form of cognitive decline over the course of their lifetime, with estimates escalating to up to 50% in those achieving advanced age. Although much attention has been directed at Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia, it is estimated that nearly one third of those cases of cognitive decline result from other neuropathological mechanisms. In fact, many patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease likely have co-morbid disorders that can also influence cognition (i.e., vascular cognitive impairment), suggesting mixed dementias are grossly under diagnosed. The Clinical Handbook on the Neuropsychology of Aging and Dementia is a unique work that provides clinicians with expert guidance and a hands-on approach to neuropsychological practice with older adults. The book will be divided into two sections, the first addressing special considerations for the evaluation of older adults, and the second half focusing on common referral questions likely to be encountered when working with this age group. The authors of the chapters are experts and are recognized by their peers as opinion leaders in their chosen chapter topics. The field of neuropsychology has played a critical role in developing methods for early identification of late life cognitive disorders as well as the differential diagnosis of dementia. Neuropsychological assessment provides valuable clinical information regarding the nature and severity of cognitive symptoms associated with dementia. Each chapter will reinforce the notion that neuropsychological measures provide the clinician with sensitive tools to differentiate normal age-related cognitive decline from disease-associated impairment, aid in differential diagnosis of cognitive dysfunction in older adults, as well as identify cognitive deficits most likely to translate into functional impairments in everyday life.

From the Back Cover:

This book offers practitioners a hands-on guide to bedrock clinical tasks. The first half of the volume addresses special considerations for conducting neuropsychological assessments of older adults, such as disease management issues, sleep concerns, and ethical matters. The second section illuminates symptoms and issues associated with specific disorders and their relationship to functional impairments. Information is presented in a practitioner friendly format with sample cases, test battery recommendations, and “clinical pearls” from recognized experts in the field. Among the Handbook’s topics: 

·                   Serial assessments in dementia.

·                   Considerations for neuropsychological evaluations with older minority patients.

·                   Impact of medications on cognition.

·                   Assessing depression and anxiety in older adults.

·                   Prevention of cognitive decline.

·                   Plus in-depth chapters on late-life cognitive impairment resulting from Alzheimer’s disease, vascular cognitive impairment, cancer, stroke, epilepsy, and a variety of other conditions.

 Useful and informative well beyond its immediate specialty, the Handbook on the Neuropsychology of Aging and Dementia is a practical reference for neuropsychologists, neurologists, primary care physicians (geriatricians, internists, family doctors), health psychologists, clinical psychologists, and clinical social workers.
