Clinicians from many disciplines have been challenged to provide appropriate and effective interventions for the diverse behavioral symptoms that define the neurologically degenerative condition, dementia. SLPs have only recently begun to develop assessment and treatment approaches for the cognitive and communication deficits that accompany dementia. This timely volume aims to serve as a reference manual and the starting point for those who want to provide life-enhancing services to persons with dementia, and to inspire the continued generation of quality research to demonstrate the value of cognitive-communication intervention. Students, researchers, and practitioners in all areas of communication sciences and disorders will find this book immensely helpful.

Organised services for those with memory disorders are growing. This growth is stimulated by an increase in the number of people with memory problems and by an increased appreciation of the complexity of the needs of such patients. Further growth is likely, especially now that we appear tohave crossed the threshold of effective treatment for many patients with dementia. With these advances has come the recognition of the necessity for an interdisciplinary approach to management. Diagnosis and Management of Dementia: A Manual for Memory Disorders Teams is an edited volume coveringall aspects of the operation of a memory disorders team. It is aimed at all those working in the dementia or memory disorders team, whether in a clinic or a community setting. The book is divided into three sections. Section One takes the reader through the practical details of setting up andorganising a clinic, from timetabling, through managing information, to the assessments needed and the opportunities such a service provides. Section Two deals with the diagnostic process; and Section Three addresses management issues, from carer support, pharmacological and physiologicalinterventions, through managing common problems, to the role of the primary care physician. An appendix contains the results of a survey of memory disorder services. This survey provides the reader with examples of other services and demonstrates the wide variation in how these services operate.The manual is unique in that it combines up-to- date thinking on diagnosis and management with practical and helpful ideas on how to run a dementia or memory disorders service.
