Die Erkenntnis, dass die Gesellschaft immer älter wird, gehört heute schon fast zum Allgemeingut. Das heißt aber nicht nur, dass immer weniger Kinder geboren werden, sondern auch, dass die Lebensspanne der Menschen länger wird. Deshalb verbreiten sich Erkrankungen, die eher im Alter auftreten, immer mehr. Alzheimer ist so eine Krankheit und zudem eine, die in der Gesellschaft weitgehend tabuisiert wird. Dabei stellt die Pflege eines Alzheimerkranken enorm hohe Anforderungen an Angehörige, Freunde und Dienstleister. "Alzheimer für Dummies" hilft die Krankheit zu erkennen, die Pflege und den Alltag mit einem Demenzkranken, Familie und Arbeit zu organisieren. In einem speziellen Kapitel widmet sich das Buch der Pflege der Pflegenden. So deckt das Buch ein breites Spektrum der Bedürfnisse der Angehörigen eines Alzheimerkranken ab.
