"Practical coverage of driving, day care, support groups, and respite is particularly welcome. This is a good book to have available, not just for social work faculty and students, but also for those in the health sciences, psychology, and sociology. It will be a useful resource for professionals coping with the increasing problems for family and community that an aging population and the epidemic of Alzheimer's disease bring with them....Recommended. Lower-level undergraduate through professionals/practitioners."--Choice Beyond the immediate and devastating effects dementia can have on individuals and their quality of life are the strains that are placed on the families, caregivers, and communities that support them. Social workers are in a unique position to address all these issues at the same time that they provide care for individuals with dementia. To facilitate the entrance of social workers into this area of care, Carol B. Cox has edited a volume of expert articles on the biological, psychological, and social aspects of dementia. . Readers will learn the latest assessment instruments, as well as how to distinguish between Alzheimer's and non-Alzheimer's dementias. Intervention strategies for every stage of dementia are presented. The effects of culture and diversity on the treatment of persons with dementia are examined, including examples of successful programs from several countries. The benefits and drawbacks of adult day services, community care, and residential care are discussed. Finally, a discussion of the legal, financial, and psychological stresses faced by caregivers of those with dementia rounds out this much needed text.

Cultural Dementia

Cultural Dementia

A blistering assessment of the West's abandonment of history as it succumbs to an attack of social and cultural dementia, by leading historian David Andress.

Author: David Andress

In this blistering book, David Andress shows how the West has abandoned its history and lost its memory. The former great powers of the historic 'West' have abandoned themselves to senile daydreams of recovered youth. They have stirred up old hatreds given disturbing voice to destructive rage, and risked the collapse of their capacity for decisive, effective and just government. At the core of this is an abandonment of political attention to history, understood as a clear empirical grounding in how we reached our present condition. In Britain, France and the USA, historical stories are deployed in public debate as little more than dangerous fantasies.

Dahlem Workshop Reports Etiology of Dementia of Alzheimer’s Type A. S. Henderson J. H. Henderson Editors Alzheimer’s disease represents one of the largest categories of chronic disability in the elderly throughout the world. This book is a timely and needed publication, exploring current research and the emerging prospects for discovering the causes of dementia of Alzheimer’s type. In the traditions of Dahlem Konferenzen, experts from epidemiology, neurophysiology, neuropsychology, neuropathology, neurochemistry, clinical psychiatry, clinical neurology and molecular biology shared their knowledge, their research findings and their thoughts on directions for future work. In particular, they decided what the most important questions for scientific progress in this field are. The selection of papers come from eminent and respected scientists and clinicians. The discussion reports, each from a multidisciplinary group, focus on specific topics: epidemiology and environmental factors, symptomatology, genetic and molecular biology, and the relation between dementing diseases of aging and the ‘normal’ process of aging. This book provides a wealth of material that encourages optimism for the future of research in these areas.
