In The Future of Alzheimer’s, the following are the two critical questions asked of more than 20 experts in the field of Alzheimer’s research and senior care.

• What advice would you give to the loved ones of someone newly diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease?
• Do you believe there will be a cure for Alzheimer’s? And if so, when?

Presented in a series of interviews with the nation’s leading authorities in Alzheimer’s treatment, education, and senior care and advocacy, The Future of Alzheimer’s offers an informative and inspirational look forward into the next ten years of Alzheimer’s treatment and beyond.

Offering a valuable perspective on the current state of Alzheimer’s care, what newly diagnosed individuals  can expect, and the likelihood of a cure in our lifetime, this book focuses on the great strides being made in the field of neurological illness and treatment while preparing Alzheimer’s patients and their loved ones for the very real challenges ahead.

There is a future after an Alzheimer’s diagnosis, one brighter than ever before. All we have to do is keep working towards it—and The Future of Alzheimer’s is the perfect place to start.
