New Alzheimer’s Resource for 2014

The current rate of diagnosis of Alzheimer’s and other dementia related illnesses is very high and it is expected to rise in the years to come. Providers need to be fully prepared to care for their current Alzheimer’s residents, as well as future ones.

The American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living's (AHCA/NCAL) bookstore has an informative resource that gives the reader understanding of what it is like for the person who has been diagnosed with this debilitating disease.

The author, Richard Taylor, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease at age 61.  The former psychologist courageously shares an account of his slow transformation and deterioration and the growing division between his world and the world of others. He does this with poignant clarity, candor, occasional humor, and more than 80 brief essays address difficult issues faced by those with Alzheimer's disease.
