About The Product
Alzheimer's disease is an ever-more important problem in today's society; however, many services for people with dementia remain inappropriate and inaccessible. With a growing and aging immigrant population, the need to be able to provide appropriate care for ethnic minority patients is increasing.
In this exciting handbook, the authors explore the clinical, management and cultural issues faced by clinicians caring for patients with Alzheimer's disease. The book addresses the particular problems that may arise when managing patients within a multiracial society, and emphasizes the practical aspects of treating and caring for patients with Alzheimer's disease.
