EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common type of neurodegenerative disorder in the ageing population, with dementia as a common consequence. AD is defined pathologically by the appearance of extracellular senile plaques and intracellular neurofibrillary tangles, as described by Alois Alzheimer about a century ago. The causes for AD include genetic predisposition in a small population, ageing and environmental stresses in majority cases. The underlying pathogenic cascades, increases in expression of amyloid precursor protein and accumulation of Aß and reactive oxidant activity and inflammation, have the features of both adaptive, at least initially, and harmful when becoming excessive. Dementia, on the other hand, is a clinical diagnosis and is defined as globally, persistently impaired cognitive skills including memory. Alzheimer dementia refers to clinical dementia in patients who also have Alzheimer neuropathology. Alzheimer dementia is what brings the patients to seek medical treatments. An extraordinary inability to form new memory, especially of those episodic type, and executive dysfunction are among the earliest symptoms in AD patients. In end-stage AD, cognitive degeneration extends far beyond memory loss. The underlying causes include decreases in impaired brain metabolism, which results in impaired synaptic functions and capacities, thus impaired information processing, and eventually leads to neuronal injury and death. This book presents leading-edge research in this dynamic field.

Alzheimer S Disease And Dementia

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Alzheimer's is swiftly on the rise: it is estimated that every 67 seconds, someone develops the disease. For many, the words "Alzheimer's diseas" or "dementia" immediately denote severe mental loss and, perhaps, madness. Indeed, the vast majority of media coverage of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and other types of dementia focuses primarily on the losses experienced by people diagnosed and the terrible burden felt by care partners yearning for a "magic bullet" drug cure. Providing an accessible, question-and-answer-format primer on what touches so many lives, and yet so few of us understand, Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia: What Everyone Needs to Know(R) contributes what is urgently missing from public knowledge: unsparing investigation of their causes and manifestations, and focus on the strengths possessed by people diagnosed. Steven R. Sabat mines a large body of research to convey the genetic and biological aspects of Alzheimer's disease, its clinical history, and, most significantly, to reveal the subjective experience of those with Alzheimer's or dementia. By clarifying the terms surrounding dementia and Alzheimer's, which are two distinct conditions, Sabat corrects dangerous misconceptions that plague our understanding of memory dysfunction and many other significant abilities that people with AD and dementia possess even in the moderate to severe stages. People diagnosed with AD retain awareness, thinking ability, and sense of self; crucially, Sabat demonstrates that there are ways to facilitate communication even when the person with AD has great difficulty finding the words he or she wants to use. From years spent exploring and observing the points of view and experiences of people diagnosed, Sabat strives to inform as well as to remind readers of the respect and empathy owed to those diagnosed and living with dementia. Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia conveys this type of information and more, which, when applied by family and professional caregivers, will help improve the quality of life of those diagnosed as well as of those who provide support and care.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Dementia is a brain disorder that seriously affects a person's ability to carry out daily activities. The most common form of dementia among older people is Alzheimer's Disease (AD), which involves the parts of the brain that control memory, thought and language. Age is the most important known risk factor for AD. The number of people with the disease doubles every 5 years beyond age 65. AD is a slow disease, starting with mild memory loss and ending with severe brain damage. The course the disease takes and how fast changes occur vary from person to person. On average, AD patients live from 8 to 10 years after they are diagnosed, though the disease can last for as many as 20 years. Current research is aimed at understanding why AD occurs and who is at greatest risk for developing it, improving the accuracy of diagnosis and ability to identify who is at risk, developing, discovering and testing new treatments for behavioural problems in patients with AD. This book gathers state-of-the-art research from leading scientists throughout the world which offers important information on understanding the underlying causes and discovering the most effective treatments for Alzheimer's Disease.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Few families are untouched by Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. Moving accounts of what it is like to care for someone with this disease have already been published, as well as how-to books that offer caregivers advice and information on coping. But this book is the first to provide a comprehensive report of what it is like to have dementia oneself—the subjective experience of living with progressive memory loss. Each chapter discusses a different aspect of having dementia, from the initial assessment and diagnosis through placement in a nursing home. The discussions are grounded in qualitative research and case studies, which convey the variable and personal nature of the experience. They seek to help clinicians, researchers, students, and caregivers (both professionals and family members) understand the experience of dementia, and thereby to promote better caregiving through a person-centered approach.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Alzheimer's disease - dementia is not only memory loss, it is a complete loss of intelligence. Today, there are about 35.6 million people with dementia worldwide. According to preliminary forecasts by WHO in the 21st century, this number will double by 2030, and by 2050 it will more than triple. The gradual fading of memory and interest in life. Knowledge and experience are forgotten. As a result of memory loss, performing simple household procedures becomes overwhelming. Dementia is not just a syndrome, it is a powerful effect on the psyche of not only sick people, but also for loved ones who care for them. This is a problem for society as a whole.My book is a personal experience and a professional view of the problem, a guide to action for those who have to take care of an elderly relative on their own; for those who are in a group risk and who are over 50 years old and for whom further full life is important.Now I live like this myself - I'm also in a group risk.Why is it important to know?The problem is that a person, often his relatives, seek help too late, when the intellect has already been lost. There are no lengthy descriptions or unnecessary information for the reader in my book. Only the most important, only the essence!Is there a chance not to get sick?Having studied the possible methods of prevention at the time of publication, I came to the conclusion that it is real to prevent and delay the development of the disease. This means that it is important for everyone to know. Even to those who are sure that this does not concern him now. We don't know how we will be after 50, 60 or 70 years. There is no indulgence for this disease. We all sometimes forget something, when, for example, if we are upset or not attentive, but this is a transient state. However, it is enough to hear good news or a compliment, be pleasantly surprised at the attention paid to us, or just have a good sleep, and there will be no trace of this forgetfulness and blues. It is typical for a person, just thinking about something, to perform mechanically habitual functions without fixing his actions in memory, and then remember, for example: Where did I put my glasses, gloves? or I recently held it in my hands, and where the hell is this receipt now? A person with Alzheimer's disease has no joy, no inspiration, his life is like a river of oblivion... The gradual fading of memory and interest in life. Knowledge and experience are forgotten. As a result of memory loss, performing simple household procedures becomes unbearable.Famous and smartest people could not avoid this disease. In fact, the overwhelming majority of the sick are people of intellectual labor, actors, scientists, politicians, and, in a minimal number, people employed in production and with working specialties.Margaret Thatcher is the ex-Prime Minister of Great Britain, the world famous Iron Lady.Ronald Reagan is the 40th President of the United States, a famous actor and TV presenter. In the year of his election as president (1980), he founded the Alzheimer's Association. Later he turned to the Americans with an open appeal, frankly stating that he showed signs of Alzheimer's disease. You can say that it was a very brave and noble act, which changed the attitude of society towards dementia patients. Alzheimer's disease - this is a problem of humanity as a whole.
