Fantastic book! Part case studies, part meditation on the past, present and future of the disease, The Problem of Alzheimer's traces Alzheimer’s from its beginnings to its recognition as a crisis.
A story that teaches children to pay attention to, and share the human connection that can be maintained when a loved one is living with Alzheimer's.
Extreme Measures charts Dr. Zitter’s journey from wanting to be one kind of hero to becoming another—a doctor who prioritizes the patient’s values and preferences in an environment where the default choice is the extreme use of technology. In our current medical culture, the old and the ill are put on what she terms the End-of-Life conveyor belt. In her work Dr. Zitter has learned what patients fear more than death itself: the prospect of dying badly.
