This is a comprehensive yet practical guide to the care and management of patients with dementia from the time of diagnosis to the end of life. For the Second Edition, the authors have added a chapter on mild cognitive impairment and expanded their coverage of the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of dementia; the pathophysiology of common and uncommon causes of dementia, especially Alzheimer disease; non-drug treatment for dementia symptoms; pharmacologic therapy for dementia; psychiatric symptoms of dementia and their treatment (especially medication treatment); and dementia in special environments (especially assisted living and nursing homes). Also new for this edition is an easy-to-use "Dementia Care Psychosocial Intervention" for everyday clinical practice. Forms that facilitate its use, including a "Dementia Care Checklist" and the "Johns Hopkins Dementia Care Guidelines for Families", are available for download on a Website created for readers of the book. Physicians, psychologists, nurses, social workers, rehabilitation therapists, and others who care for patients with dementia in almost any setting, including long-term care, will find this Second Edition to be an invaluable resource.
