Assisting someone with Alzheimer's disease or another illness that causes dementia is incredibly demanding and stressful for the family. Like many disabling conditions, Alzheimer's disease leads to difficulty or inability to carry out common activities of daily life, and so family members take over a variety of tasks ranging from managing the person's finances to helping with intimate activities such as bathing and dressing.

Key coverage in Caregiving for Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders includes:

Early diagnosis and family dynamics
Emotional needs of caregivers
Developmentally appropriate long-term care for people with Alzheimer's
Family caregivers as members of the Alzheimer's treatment Team
Legal and ethical issues for caregivers
Faith and spirituality
The economics of caring for individuals with Alzheimer's disease
Cultural, racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic issues of minority caregivers
Advances in Alzheimer's disease research

Caregiving for Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders offers a wealth of insights and ideas for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students across the caregiving fields, including psychology, social work, public health, geriatrics and gerontology, and medicine as well as public and education policy makers.
