Summary "The ceasing of a family member's ability to reason, function and respond is a tragedy. With major increases in dementia predicted for the coming decade, a book like Dementia and Alzheimer's is needed ever more to cut through clutter of anecdotes and assumptions. Facing the crisis of widespread patient volumes with dementia, Dementia and Alzheimer's explains governmental and private entities' benefit programs for dementia patients, and how government and insurers do and should respond, while integrating sophisticated medical tactics with vital family cooperative responses to their loved one's mental health crisis. The text explains what works and what approaches work best for responses. The ceasing of a family member's ability to reason, function and respond is a tragedy.

"We begin with a realistic scenario for the counselor: You have been called for help after a family has experienced the grave difficulty of confronting dementia in a parent, sibling or relative. This chapter discusses the family context within which our later chapters on detailed legal solutions will be presented by the attorney. Diagnosis of dementia in a loved one brings a slow heartbreak, and experience with that sad event carries this message to family members: "Don't try dealing with this alone!" Yes, counselors say, life is unfair, but you must "get over it", and assume the helper role that your loved one needs for you to perform. Each dementia patient will need multiple caregivers, allies, and respite care providers for those caregivers. This requires a family's close attention to their newly discovered responsibilities. "It takes a village..." for a family to come out of the dementia experience with a positive unity among the family members. Though each case is different, the patterns can be recognized and responded to by experienced nurses and social workers"-- Provided by publisher
