The Spectrum of Hope
An Optimistic and New Approach to Alzheimer's Disease and Other DementiasBook - 2017
A neurologist with 20 years experience treating Alzheimer's and other dementias, Dr. Devi presents a realistic, optimistic viewpoint on the disease. She does not see a diagnosis as a sentence to inexorable decline. Rather she sees Alzheimer's as a spectrum disease that affects different people differently; with early treatment, some people actually improve. By telling the stories of her patients, Dr. Devi compassionately shows the many faces and aspects of the disease and offers guidance for living the fullest possible life. The book will offer hope to those who have Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia, many of whom are under the age of 65.
