The marriages of patients with Alzheimer's disease are examined in this book, which relates research findings to specific assessments and interventions that nurses can employ to help the caregiver. The author carefully documents how Alzheimer's disease invades various dimensions of marriage and how spouses retain or lose awareness of each other. The dimensions of marriage that are explored include household tasks, companionship, affection and sexuality. For each dimension, clinical assessment strategies and guidelines for interventions are described.
