A Books on Prescription/Reading Well title
Do you, or does someone you know, struggle to remember things? For every person who develops Alzheimer's, there are thought to be at least another eight whose memory problems are severe enough to affect the quality of their lives.
Written by an award-winning neuropsychologist, Coping with Memory Problems has been written to help you, or the person you are caring for, cope with memory difficulties. It explains how memory works and describes strategies you can use to boost your brain. It also looks at the most common causes of memory problems and shows you how to seek further help for something that might be more than just age-related decline.
Although there is no miracle solution, using the strategies outlined in this book will go a long way to reducing the annoyance that memory problems can cause in daily life, and thus to restoring your equilibrium and wellbeing.
"Memory problems can be worrying and difficult to understand. This book is written by a internationally renowned neuro-psychologist - and is clear and helpful to anyone with any interest in this issue." - Dr Dominic Heaney, Consultant Neurologist and Honorary Senior Lecturer, National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery
