Working with the needs of patients with Alzheimer’s disease can be a major challenge for primary care physicians, psychiatrists, and other mental-health professionals. Alzheimer’s wreaks havoc on the patient, and its degenerative nature can create a protracted period of anguish and anxiety for the patient’s family. Dr. Marc Agronin has put his years of experience as a geriatric psychiatrist to work to create an eminently useful resource for psychiatrists and others who treat patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. Now in its third edition, Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias uses concise and clear language to outline the symptoms, effects and treatments used to combat the progress of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias likely to be suffered by older patients. Enriched by case studies from his own clinical practice, Dr. Agronin creates a volume full of humanity, insight, and knowledge that is sure to inform and improve the habits and methods of any clinician who deals with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
