The Spectrum of Hope

The science and offers eual parts wisdom and practical advice with skillful ease But beyond that it offers real hop. A welcome and much needed alternative to the dire picture of the one size fits all Alzheimer s that exists in the popular media this book offers an alternative a spectrum with room for lifestyle changes medicine that offsets rate of change The message is wholly inspiring There is no uestion about it Especially when the author a noted neurologist takes the time to explain the facts genetics doesn t turn out to explain much even though somehow everyone assumes they do Once the reader understands that big piece of the puzzle the spectrum of dementia makes so much sense it s amazing we haven t heard of it before The case histories are wonderful they thoughtfully expand on ideas that otherwise would remain just outside our grasp We wouldn t think of them unless someone we knew had experienced them I had one struggle I wished was said about dementia and apathy It was just too briefly mentioned Otherwise this is a gem and should be widely shared Too many friends and relatives live in uiet fear of their future and need not I received my copy from the publisher through NetGalley I am deeply appreciative

Read & download The Spectrum of Hope

A neurologist who specializes in dementia and memory loss Dr Gayatri Devi rewrites the story of Alzheimer's by defin. When I saw the title of this book I was immediately drawn to it I felt the need to find what this doctor has learned what there is that is cause for optimism in her approach to Alzheimer s and other dementias What I ve learned does give me hope and a measure of optimism Within the Alzheimer s classifications of rapid vs slowly progressive Dr Devi has broken down the disease into further levels and evaluates major cognitive areas and current level of function Using multiple case studies she makes the case for various forms of intervention and how they can markedly affect the speed of progression of the disease As a former Occupational Therapist who worked in home care for many years I wish I d had this resource for patients and families Of course most of the people I saw were further along the spectrum by the time I met them but there is valuable information for those families here tooThe book provides information on the diagnostic process the various aspects of the treatment process recommended by Dr Devi along with results seen in case studies and some of patients who opted not to participate There is also a nice section on the difference between memory and intelligence very useful for anyone who has had a patient or family member say How did I get so stupid There is a chapter on the genetics of Alzheimer s and also the use of diet physical activity and social engagement as means of prevention Other chapters deal with such common problems as fear of bathing depression apathy Also when is it time to hire private help And each of these are shown through multiple case studies each from a slightly different perspective And there is much One of the major public mis perceptions is that ALL of Alzheimer s IS the most severe cases In truth there are very likely many undiagnosed people functioning well in society around you every day working driving socialising without any perceptible problem Their symptoms are so sub clinical that they and their significant others don t notice them Many of Dr Devi s patients continue to work with some adaptation for years some in very high level positions Of course as the doctor emphasizes no two people are alike and no two cases of Alzheimer s are alike I hope that should I develop the tell tale symptoms of Alzheimer s I am fortunate enough to find a physician as intelligent as humane and as caring as Dr Devi who obviously has acted with her whole and best self as much as possible on behalf of her patients and their familiesI recommend this as a resource for libraries for individuals in health care and for those with interest in this area be they patients or family members A copy of this book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley in return for an honest review
