Résumé :

Recent medical advances have made it possible to diagnose Alzheimer's when symptoms are only mild. New drugs are under investigation to help slow progression of the disease, and there is hope on the horizon for more effective treatments to keep the disease at bay. Today, when a person is diagnosed with Alzheimer's, they may have many years ahead with only mild symptoms. The result is that a growing number of people with early-stage Alzheimer's are seeking information about how to take charge of their diagnosis, manage symptoms, and cope effectively with the disease. Since the vast majority of books on Alzheimer's are written to caregivers, persons with the diagnosis are in great need of a resource that speaks directly to their own experiences and concerns while providing strategies for managing their daily life. Living Your Best with Early-Stage Alzheimer's: An Essential Guide fills an enormous void by providing a straightforward, practical guide on coping with the diagnosis, effectively managing symptoms, finding meaningful activity, planning for the future, strategies for easier communication, participating in research and clinical trials, and much more.
