Show synopsis It's a well known fact that impaired memory becomes more prevalent with aging. In a survey of memory function performed among community-dwelling elderly persons in the United States, 4% between the ages of 65 and 69 years had moderate to severe memory problems. That number skyrockets to 36% among those 85 years and older. Differentiating normal aging from pathological cognitive decline is of paramount significance for early intervention. In Clinical Manual of Alzheimer Disease and Other Dementias, practicing psychiatrists and neurologists address neuropsychiatric assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of a wide range of clinical neuropsychiatric conditions, including Alzheimer disease and traumatic brain injury, in a highly readable format. Drawing on the detailed coverage of diagnostic and treatment approaches in The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Alzheimer Disease and Other Dementias, Clinical Manual of Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias, is an essential and highly readable clinical management guide reference tool for busy clinicians. A chapter on community resources has been included to enable clinicians to better support patients and families through local and national organizations and agencies.
