Inhaltsangabe: Although the public most often associates dementia with Alzheimer?s disease, the medical profession now distinguishes various types of ?other? dementias. This book is the first and only comprehensive guide dealing with frontotemporal degeneration (FTD), one of the largest groups of non-Alzheimer?s dementias. The contributors are either specialists in their fields or have exceptional hands-on experience with FTD sufferers.
           
Beginning with a focus on the medical facts, the first part defines and explores FTD as an illness distinct from Alzheimer?s disease. Also considered are clinical and medical care issues and practices, as well as such topics as finding a medical team and rehabilitation interventions. The next section on managing care examines the daily care routine including exercise, socialization, adapting the home environment, and behavioral issues. In the following section on caregiver resources, the contributors identify professional and government assistance programs along with private resources and legal options. The final section focuses on the caregiver, in particular the need for respite and the challenge of managing emotions.
           
This new, completely revised edition follows recent worldwide collaboration in research and provides the most current medical information available, a better understanding of the different classifications of FTD, and more clarity regarding the role of genetics. The wealth of information offered in these pages will help both healthcare professionals and caregivers of someone suffering from frontotemporal degeneration.

Rezension: "[A]n updated handbook packed from cover to cover with tips and information for caregivers and sufferers alike."

-- "Bookwatch" (review of the first edition)
"[D]eals with a topic about which little has been written. ...an excellent resource....makes an important contribution to the family caregiving literature because of the biomedical and professional insight it offers into an important but rarely discussed type of dementia."

-- "Canadian Journal on Aging" (review of the first edition)

"I am certain that no one else but the Radins has been more dedicated to updating the vital information to help caregivers navigate the emotionally trying, ever-evolving landscape of frontotemporal degeneration (FTD). Caregivers for FTD need more resources, which they can find in this book and in each other."

--Dr. Tiffany Chow, behavioral neurologist, author of "The Memory Clinic"
