Summary and Info
Of the estimated 5 million Americans who have Alzheimer's disease, more than 7 in 10 live at home, primarily cared for by family and friends. Alzheimer's Disease: A Handbook for Caregivers, Family, and Friends features a workbook-type format aimed at increasing the caregiver's knowledge of the disease. As a result, these caregivers — whether family members, friends or health professionals — will be better equipped to nurture the dignity within people living with Alzheimer's and feel more confident doing so. The book is a tool for caregivers that will impact not only the way they relate to persons with Alzheimer's disease, but other relationships as well.
