Books on Alzheimer and Dementia

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive and fatal brain disease that currently has no cure.  Alzheimer's destroys brain cells, which causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior.  The effects can be severe enough to impair a person’s ability to work, play and interact with family and friends.  It is the most common form of dementia, a general term for the loss of memory and other intellectual abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life.  Other types of dementia include vascular dementia, mixed dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies and frontotemporal dementia.
