Two world-renowned researchers from the Douglas have written a complete and practical guide on Alzheimer's Disease.

Judes Poirier, PhD, CQ, and Serge Gauthier, MD, are the authors of this non-specialized reference book written for those close to someone with Alzheimer's Disease as well as the general public.

The two authors address all aspects of the illness including: risk factors, the stages of its progression, as well as past and present research and where it will lead in terms of treatment and prevention. They also detail what a typical first visit to a physician's office is like for patients, as well as clinical evaluation, different medication options, etc.

This book is presently only available in French but is in translation into English.

Note that the two authors will be available during the Salon du livre de Montréal. Consult  the schedule for details.
