Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
With increased awareness of the symptoms of Alzheimer's and improved diagnostic techniques, more people are learning that they or a family member have a memory disorder. Yet few books aimed at helping families understand and cope with the disease's early stages have been available--until now. Kuhn, a social worker and education director at Chicago's Rush Alzheimer's Disease Center, guides families in developing a philosophy of care, offering clear, current information on the nature of the illness along with anecdotes drawn from his own practice and first-person caregiver accounts. Throughout, Kuhn stresses the importance of sharing the care by involving others. Especially valuable is the extensive resource list of web sites, organizations, and references to consumer and professional literature. More details, particularly on such topics as finding knowledgeable medical providers, would have strengthened this worthwhile book. Still, this is a much-needed addition to the Alzheimer's literature. For all consumer health collections.--Karen McNally Bensing, Benjamin Rose Inst. Lib., Cleveland Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    Alzheimer's Early Stages: First Steps in Caring and Treatment

    My husband began to show symptoms of Alzheimer's disease about five years ago but at first I refused to believe it. All of the awful things I had heard about Alzheimer's simply did not apply to him. The information I began to read did not fit him either. Finally, newcomers to this disease now have this book available to offer both help and hope. I wish I had this guide in hand from the start. Even those experienced in caring for a relative with the disease will find this book useful.
