Summary
"By defining Alzheimer's Disease as a spectrum disorder---like autism, it affects different people differently---Dr. Gayatri Devi offers new hope for its millions of sufferers. A neurologist who's been specializing in dementia and memory loss for more than 20 years, Dr. Devi shares the stories of her patients in the kind of narrative medical writing that grips the reader, humanizes the science, and offers equal parts practical wisdom and advice. She explains the importance of an early diagnosis; drugs and therapies that can help manage the disease; and how to cope, from maintaining independence to the best ways to fight depression and apathy. There are chapters on sexuality, genetics, communication, even staying on the job---because through her practice, Dr. Devi knows that the majority of Alzheimer's patients continue to live and work in their communities. They babysit the grandkids, drive to the store (or own the store), serve their clients, or otherwise live fulfilling lives."--Back cover
