Alzheimer's disease is a progressive, degenerative and irreversible brain disorder that causes significant neurological impairment. The condition is closely associated with ageing, and it is estimated that 2-5% of people over 65 years of age and up to 20% of those over 85 years of age sufferfrom the disease. Although the disorder is well characterised neuropathologically, accurate diagnosis can be problematic for the clinician.Part of the Oxford Neuropsychiatry Library series, this practical pocketbook will summarise the latest understanding of the possible causes of the disease, the methods of diagnosis and assessment, and current management techniques. The book will also include helpful chapters on supporting thepatient/caregiver and safety/legal issues.
