Assisting someone with Alzheimer’s disease or another illness that causes dementia is incredibly demanding and stressful for the family. Like many disabling conditions, Alzheimer’s disease leads to difficulty or inability to carry out common activities of daily life, and so family members take over a variety of tasks ranging from managing the person’s finances to helping with intimate activities such as bathing and dressing.

  • Early diagnosis and family dynamics
  • Emotional needs of caregivers
  • Developmentally appropriate long-term care for people with Alzheimer’s
  • Family caregivers as members of the Alzheimer’s treatment Team
  • Legal and ethical issues for caregivers
  • Faith and spirituality
  • The economics of caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease
  • Cultural, racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic issues of minority caregivers
  • Advances in Alzheimer’s disease research

Caregiving for Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders offers a wealth of insights and ideas for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students across the caregiving fields, including psychology, social work, public health, geriatrics and gerontology, and medicine as well as public and education policy makers.
