The professional guardian, appointed by a court to make decisions for a person unable to do so, needs to know about Alzheimer's disease.

This progressive, irreversible dementia largely targets older people, the same group where most guardianships are. The guardian is far more likely to have a ward with Alzheimer's than one with AIDS.

The book describes:

--What Alzheimer's disease is

--Palliative management

--Impact on the guardianship

--How the guardian interacts with the Alzheimer's care facility

--Standard of care prior to end of life

--Standard of care at end of life

(The Center for Guardianship Certification has approved this book for use in continuing education.)
