In a smoothly abridged and information-packed audio, an experienced mental health practitioner focuses on the early stages of this devastating disease. He clarifies the differences between Alzheimer's symptoms and impairments due to normal aging or other brain syndromes. His explanations of the medical and physiological reasons for Alzheimer's symptoms are very accessible. Without being melodramatic he sounds sensitive to how families experience this kind of loss. Helped by a reasonably optimistic reading by William Dufris, the author's recommendations cover a wide range of social and medical options, all intended to help families retain some sense of order and equilibrium while they cope with this kind of tragedy.
