Formatted Contents Note:
Introduction -- Do I have Alzheimer's? Identifying memory disorders and the importance of early diagnosis -- I have Alzheimer's: now what? Alzheimer's as a spectrum disease -- and using a multipronged treatment approach -- Whether I have Alzheimer's disease is nobody's business but my own. When and how to share the diagnosis -- Do I need to quit my job? Continuing to work with dementia -- and knowing when to retire -- Who says I can't drive? Maintaining independence and dignity in Alzheimer's -- Will I pass this on to my children? The genetics of Alzheimer's -- and paths to prevention -- Do I face special challenges as a woman? Gender and Alzheimer's -- I just don't care about anything anymore. Treating depression and anxiety in dementia and what to do about apathy -- I'd be crazy not to be paranoid! Understanding paranoia, apraxia, and other frustrating behaviors, and how to effectively communicate when logic doesn't work -- I'm not lost -- I'm on the road less traveled. Why not to worry about wandering -- I can't take it anymore! Advice to caregivers -- self-care, stress reduction, and when to seek additional help -- I think my husband is cheating on me with my aide. Navigating sexuality: suspicion, affairs, and special arrangements -- Should I go to the hospital if I'm sick? Treating medical illness alongside dementia -- Whether you like it or not, here's what I want. Maintaining individuality in the face of Alzheimer's -- I would rather die at home. Living and dying with dignity -- in the comfort of home -- Gee, that must be depressing! My life as a physician specializing in Alzheimer's -- trials, rewards, and lessons learned.
