Details

Alzheimer’s disease will become more prevalent in the upcoming decades. With no cure on the horizon, it is important that close relatives and family members of affected patients become knowledgeable about the disease; they can be more conscientious caregivers and improve quality of life.

Awareness and knowledge of the disease are especially important for the young adult population, as they will be heavily relied upon in the future to care for those with the disease. In this book, we present studies that looked into the awareness level of young adults by geographical location, age, sex, and familial ties to the disease. (Imprint: Nova)
