A tremendous resource for all those grappling with Alzheimer's disease, including patients, families, caregivers, and professionals.

This fully revised and updated edition gives the latest information on causes, preventive measures, diagnosis, treatment, and drugs. But The Loss of Self goes even further than the biological, medical, and social issues to explore the emotional challenges any person coping with Alzheimer's will experience. Personal stories give hope, dignity, and ideas for solving even the most difficult problems such as sexuality, violence, abuse, and family conflict. The Loss of Self speaks to those suffering from Alzheimer's and to family members wanting to understand how to help a relative and to meet their own needs over the long years of caring.

"Anyone at all involved with Alzheimer's...should read this indispensable book."—Oliver Sacks, M.D.

"[T]he most useful source of practical guidelines for the general care of patients with Alzheimer's disease yet to be published."— Irving S. Wright, M.D., president, American Federation for Aging Research

Donna Cohen is a professor in the
Department of Aging and Mental Health at the University of South Florida. Carl Eisdorfer is chairman of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Miami.
