Description : The ceasing of a family member’s ability to reason, function and respond is a tragedy. With major increases in dementia predicted for the coming decade, a book like ‘Dementia and Alzheimer’s’ is needed ever more to cut through clutter of anecdotes and assumptions. Facing the crisis of widespread patient volumes with dementia, ‘Dementia and Alzheimer’s’ explains governmental and private entities’ benefit programs for dementia patients, and how government and insurers do and should respond, while integrating sophisticated medical tactics with vital family cooperative responses to their loved one’s mental health crisis. The text explains what works and what approaches work best for responses.

Description : Individuals or families receiving a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or brain damage from a stroke face daunting questions: how to provide for care when the patient can no longer manage his or her own affairs, how to protect their rights and property, where to go for help, and how to cope with the day-to-day challenges of fading memory and diminished cognition. Here is a comprehensive guide specifically for aging Nevadans and for family members, professional caregivers, and health care workers who help them. The authors—an elder law attorney and a specialist in geriatric care management—offer readers useful advice from the perspective of Nevada resources and Nevada law, addressing such topics as the legal and financial steps that patients and their families can take to protect themselves and their assets, paying for long-term care, arranging for guardianship, and tending to the details that follow the death of a loved one. This edition, updated in 2011, includes information about recent changes in laws that affect seniors, new research and treatments, and a new guide to resources throughout the state that can provide assistance to people afflicted with these medical conditions.
