The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Alzheimer Disease and Other Dementias is an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of dementia for psychiatrists and other health care practitioners who deal with cognitively impaired adults in outpatient, inpatient, and long-term care settings. With content ranging from clinical guidance to basic research, it contains information on nearly every subject related to dementing conditions or illnesses -- not only providing extensive coverage of clinical management issues but also enabling a deeper understanding of the causes of dementia. Designed to assist the practitioner faced with everyday dilemmas, from dosages of antipsychotic drugs to legal and ethical issues, this textbook describes in detail the most common conditions and diseases leading to dementia and covers pharmacologic, behavioral, and environmental treatments. It also considers a broader range of cognitive disorders and impairment in order to help practitioners recognize and treat primary brain diseases and systemic disorders affecting the brain before they reach the stage of dementia. Building on the editors' earlier work The Dementias: Diagnosis, Treatment, and Research, this new book expands on its scope, with nearly twice the number of contributors -- all clinicians or researchers at the vanguard of the field. New to this edition are chapters on epidemiology, history of dementia, biomarkers for Alzheimer disease, care of the late-stage dementia patient, prevention of dementia, and chapters devoted to: Vascular cognitive impairment, emphasizing the importance of early detection with development of appropriate treatments and risk factor control Dementia with Lewy bodies and other synucleinopathies, describing differences in cognitive profile between synucleinopathies and Alzheimer disease Frontotemporal dementias, including behavioral and language variants Traumatic brain injury, distinguishing between proximal and distal effects and risk factors for dementia later in life An abundance of charts and illustrations, extensive references and additional readings, and chapter-end key points make this a practical volume for learning, while appendixes include easily administered instruments useful in daily practice for grading cognition, day-to-day function, neuropsychiatric symptoms, and quality of life. Whether used as a clinical guide or as a sourcebook on technical and scientific developments, The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Alzheimer Disease and Other Dementias is an important reference for psychiatrists, neurologists, geriatricians, primary care physicians, and other health professionals who deal with cognitively impaired adults.

Studies show that residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities are at a substantial risk of having psychiatric disorders. This practical volume provides much-needed clinical guidance for the prevention and appropriate treatment of mental illness in long-term care settings. Abhilash K. Desai and George T. Grossberg offer a basic framework for a humanistic, team-based approach to meeting the needs of elder persons with mental disorders in long-term care facilities. Early chapters cover the demographics of residents, the epidemiology of their psychiatric symptoms, and the assessment process. Subsequent chapters focus on major disorders, including dementia, delirium, depression, psychosis, and anxiety. The authors discuss end-of-life issues and treatments and offer suggestions for improving care. Throughout, they highlight the importance of the relationship between staff and residents. Emphasizing creative engagement and hands-on care and featuring clinical vignettes and practical tips, this optimistic volume reinforces the potential for nursing homes and assisted living facilities to be communities where residents thrive.
