Understanding Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias
Dementia is a term used to describe any condition where a variety of different brain functions such as memory, thinking, recognition, language, planning and personality deteriorate over time. Dementia is not part of normal ageing. Everyone gets more forgetful as they get older – that does not mean that they have dementia. The most common type of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease, but there are several other types. There is a lot of myth and misinformation about dementia. This book is intended for anyone who has, or may be worried that they or their family and friends have, dementia. It is also for people who live or work with someone with dementia. We hope that by reading this book you will have a better understanding of what causes the illness and how it is diagnosed and treated.

Guidelines on Depression in Older People: Practising the Evidence
Depression is the most prevalent mental health disorder in later life, affecting 1 in 10 older people. It can have devastating effects on quality of life and is associated with an increased mortality, poorer recovery from physical illness, longer hospital stays and greater health care costs. Yet of all mental disorders, depression is the most readily treatable. This book provides practical clinical guidance and communicates in a concise, easy-to-read format the mass of information now available in this area. Written from an evidence-based perspective, it presents authoritative guidelines on the best practice and management of depression in older people with regard to the presentation, causation, drug and non-drug management of depression and the aftercare involved in order to keep the patient well. Supported with clinical data and additional practical material, ranging from scales and algorithms to summaries of major papers and WPA teaching modules, this is a valuable resource not only for psychiatrists but also neurologists, geriatricians and primary care practitioners.
