Item Description...
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 comprehensive guide dealing with frontotemporal dementia (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.
This newly 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. A completely new chapter 5 enlightens the reader about the various drugs that are now being used with FTD patients and also delves into a number of nonmedical options. The wealth of information offered in these pages will help both healthcare professionals and caregivers of someone suffering from frontotemporal dementia.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
truly enlightening  Nov 16, 2008
When dementia creeps into a diagnosis, and age is a factor, AD seems to always be the 'next step' in the thought process. As I read more, I doubted the 'next step'. The symptoms just didn't fit. This book opened a whole new way of thinking about dementia and in our case, described our situation to a tee. It even surprised our PCP. It's a real find for the lay person looking for answers in the maze of stereotypes re: dementia.
helpful book  Sep 7, 2008
This book is a very good resource if you have a loved one diagnosed with FTD (Frontal Temporal Dementia). There is very thorough information about this disease. It is a shock when a loved one receives this diagnosis but this book is a very thorough resource.
What If It's Not Alzheimer's?  Jun 5, 2008
Very helpful book with many "tips" and list of resources for dealing with a devastating illness that has a devastating impact on family members and friends. Helps to know what to expect and how to cope. Highly recommend for anyone (friend or family) dealing with a loved one with dementia.
Important book  May 27, 2008
After I read the book that I purchased for myself, I purchased copies for every other effected family member. It helps so much with understanding what is going on with this bizarre disease.
So helpful!  Feb 26, 2008
My sister is 39 had was diagnosed with FTD, probable Pick's Disease. My mother is her full-time caregiver and I gave this to her for Christmas. She said it's the most helpful, interesting book she could imagine on the subject. It's great to know you're not alone when there's such little information available!
