Alzheimer"s Disease Unraveling the Mystery AD: A Growing Naional Problem; writer, Anne Brown Rodgers
About this book: Thinking about AD leads to questions such as: what caused it? What can be done to cure it or prevent it? Will I get it? Scientists ask the same type of questions, and this book describes their search for answers. It is written for people with AD, their family members and friends, caregivers, and others interested in AD.
This book has four sections:
Part I gives readers some basics about the healthy brain. Illustrations and text show what a healthy brain looks like and how it works.
Part 2 focuses on what happens in the brain during AD.
Part 3 talks about current research and the advances that are bringing us closer to ways of managing and eventually defeating AD
Part 4 focuses on issues important to AD caregivers and families, including current research that is finding ways to improve caregiver support
