This is a comprehensive yet practical guide to the care and management of patients with dementia from time of diagnosis to the end of life. It is intended for the increasing number of physicians nurses psychologists social workers rehabilitation therapists and long-term care givers responsible for the care of individuals with dementia. In the Third Edition the authors have increased their emphasis on the use of non-pharmacologic treatments for behavioral and neuropsychiatric symptoms and incorporated the previous edition's chapter on genetics into their discussion of specific diseases that cause dementia. Other sections that have received extensive revision or expansion include those on diagnostic techniques early prevention evaluation of clinical needs and variations between sites of care.
