Rate this:
Former president Ronald Reagan's disclosure of his Alzheimer's disease has helped show the country that Alzheimer's is nothing to be ashamed of and getting it is no one's fault. Alzheimer's is a common condition that currently afflicts 4 million Americans and touches another 20 million family members who care for them.

From the point of view of someone who's been there, Alzheimer's: Finding the Words shows family members how the disease affects speech -- and how to communicate with a faltering mind.

This helpful communication guide also includes a short-term memory questionnaire, the latest research findings, and insightful interviews with physicians, caregivers, family members, and patients.
