Dementia affects more than 700,000 people in the UK, the vast majority of whom are looked after by unpaid carers. When Someone You Love Has Dementia looks at practical and emotional issues to consider if you suspect or know someone you love has Alzheimer's or another form of dementia. It explains how the person might be affected, the impact this might have on you and your family, and how you can access practical help and support you need. Topics include; how to get medical help even if your loved one insists there's nothing wrong, types of dementia, including Alzheimer's Lewy body and vascular dementia, when the person with dementia is your partner, how medication may help, non-drug treatments and therapies, how people with dementia can retain skills and abilites, coping with the practicalities - memory and behaviour, outside help, benefits and services, residential care, coping with being a carer. In this comprehensive guide, Susan Elliot-Wright says that understanding this all-too-common illness will help raise awareness and improve quality of life for those living with its effects.
