About This Book

Creeping slow death of the human brain’s ability to reason, function, remember and respond, poses a family tragedy. As major increases in the volume of dementia cases have been predicted for the coming decade, this book is ever more needed to cut through the clutter of assumptions and anecdotes. It explains governmental and private entities’ benefit programs for aiding dementia patients. The text faces the sad crisis of widespread dementia, explains how government and insurers do and should respond, and integrates sophisticated medical tactics with vital cooperative responses by families and friends to their loved one’s mental health crisis.
