Through five editions, The 36-Hour Day has been the "bible" for families who love and care for people with Alzheimer disease. This book offers much-needed information and support to millions of people throughout the world. Whether a person has Alzheimer disease, vascular dementia, or another form of dementia, he or she will struggle with independent living and most likely face medical, behavioral, mood, and legal and financial problems. This essential resource will help family members and caregivers address all of these challenges and simultaneously cope with their own emotions and needs.


 


Thoroughly revised and updated, this sixth edition features easy-to-see take-away messages about every aspect of caregiving. Informed by new research into the causes of dementia and the search for therapies to prevent or cure dementia, this edition also includes new and expanded information on


 


• what we know about how to prevent dementia and the diseases that cause dementia;


• new high-tech and low-tech devices to make life simpler and safer for people who have dementia;


• behavioral and neuropsychiatric symptoms;


• strategies for delaying symptoms in a person who has dementia;


• changes in Medicare and other health care insurance laws;


• changes in banking practices with regard to competency;


• palliative care, hospice care, durable power of attorney, and guardianship;


• Continuing Care at Home programs;


• Parkinson’s related dementia;


• dementia due to traumatic brain injury


• choosing and moving a person to residential care; and


• support groups for caregivers, friends, and family members


 


The central idea underlying the book - that much can be done to improve the lives of people with dementia and of those caring for them - remains the same. Still very much the book readers turn to, this fresh edition of The 36-Hour Day is the definitive guide for those who continue to love someone even after he or she has been changed by dementia.
