Summary

The second edition of Management of Dementia combines a balanced review of the latest knowledge and research in this area with practical guidance based on the authors' considerable personal experience in dementia care.

Topics include:

  • The diagnostic criteria of Parkinson’s disease dementia
  • Approaches to combat behavioural disturbances, depression, psychosis, and agitation
  • Suggestions for overcoming sleep disturbances
  • An update on the many genetic findings in Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal dementia, and dementia with Lewy bodies
  • Biological markers of Parkinson’s disease dementia
  • Symptomatic and disease-modifying treatments, including drugs and other potential preventive or stabilizing methods
  • Advice for managing the difficult later stages of dementia in long-term care
  • New assessment scales
  • Management of dementia using primary and secondary prevention
  • Drug treatments for patients with specific causes of dementia
  • Treatments based on an individual’s phenotypic and genetic features

Directed at practitioners who want to practice evidence-based medicine without losing sight of the patient, this volumr is designed to ensure physicians are dispensing the most appropriate pharmacology while also using other non-pharmacological treatments to their optimum effect. Concise and easy to read, the book provides readers with a full knowledge of the evolution of modern dementia care as well as the basis for understanding new developments as they occur.
