We can treat Alzheimer's ...

"Speaking for my colleagues, we are confident that we can treat Alzheimer's disease and reduce its burden on individuals and society." —
Ronald C. Petersen, M.D., Ph. D.
Medical Editor

Mayo Clinic has helped many Alzheimer's patients and their families cope with a difficult disease, through both patient care and our earlier books.

Mayo Clinic on Alzheimer's Disease is completely updated based on the patient care experience and research of Mayo doctors. The book brings you the latest, most-effective treatment approaches we know and is a must-read for every caregiver.

Actively managing Alzheimer's and other conditions that cause dementia can significantly improve quality of life, both for the person with the condition and for his or her caregiver. This book is full of new discoveries we're eager to pass on to you. For example …

  • Mayo Clinic on Alzheimer's Disease tells you about advances in brain research that allow doctors to detect the condition in its earliest stages. This gives us hope for unraveling some of the real mysteries surrounding the disease.
  • A critical development in medical technology is the ability to detect plaques in the living brain through molecular imaging. With this breakthrough, it's now possible to track progress of the disease and the effects of medication therapy on a patient.
  • Many Alzheimer's patients can be helped by treating their coexisting conditions, such as depression, anxiety or a sleep disorder. Often, treating these conditions results in improved general health and potentially even better cognition.

If you are the friend, loved one or caregiver of someone with Alzheimer's, this book is a must-read. You'll learn about treatment goals, medications, strategies to deal with changing behaviors, and best ways to approach advanced or severe cases.

Action Guide for Caregivers

Mayo Clinic on Alzheimer's Disease includes an Action Guide for Caregivers, offering guidance on the journey with a loved one through the stages of Alzheimer's. You'll learn how to make a workable care plan, improve communication, deal with challenging behaviors and more.

Review the guide all at once, or focus on the most relevant sections at a given time. Either way, you'll gain a greater understanding of the disease and learn better ways to cope today, tomorrow and in the years ahead.

  • Becoming a caregiver
  • Making a care plan
  • Being good to yourself

  • Most experts agree you can improve your memory by adopting some everyday habits. This is a great possibility, and tips in the book may help you accomplish it. You'll learn six habits that may be your best bets for maintaining your memory.
  • More good news — the behaviors that have the greatest potential for reducing your risk of Alzheimer's disease are also the ones that may have the greatest impact on improving your overall health and wellness. True head-to-toe health!
