Item description for Coping with the Influx of Dementia Patients - The need to involve the communities and church groups with medical and social program initiatives by Herminia Thacker...
Alzheimer's, like a thief in the night, slowly steals the mind until only an empty shell remains. In a little over four decades, over 100 million individuals worldwide will fall victims to Alzheimer's Disease. There is no cure. It is a death sentence in agonizing slow motion. Who will provide long-term care to brain-damaged family members? What motivates them? Why do they do it? How long can they continue to assume an active role? This work investigates a world engulfed in isolation and deprivation, as well as changes that occur over time in providing care to the walking dead. This book is addressed to health care professionals, social service providers, the clerics, and the general public.
