These images of Alzheimer's - forgetting, madness, nursing homes - frighten us, make us want to walk the other way. But geriatric psychiatrist Patrick Mathiasen wants us to know that his images have slowly changed as he's worked around the edges of this "thief of memory. Where he once saw no more than the shell of a body, he now sees lives that have unfolded. And amid the undeniable sadness and difficulty, he encounters hope and humor and caring.

But geriatric psychiatrist Patrick Mathiasen. On such a dark and lonely journey, a guide would be a necessity. On the darkest of days, An Ocean of Time:Alzheimer's:Tales of Hope and Forgetting, is such a guide

Alzheimer's runs in Mathiasen's own family, and his early memories of visits with his father to a stricken aunt, and the fears these visits aroused, helped to shape his desire to understand this mysterious illness. Alzheimer's disease, says Mathiasen, touches on fears that may be even stronger than the fear of death: the fear of losing our minds, of becoming something not quite human. The patients he describes are still very human-singing bits of opera, dancing an Irish jig, railing at a painting by a hated artist.

Mathiasen weaves together information about the disease process with vignettes from the lives of his Alzheimer's patients. An Ocean of Time is geared towards those who have seen their loved one mentally kidnapped and wonder where they are. It assists the caregiver in understanding the "windows" that are typical of the disease. It helps caregivers to dialogue meaningfully with their loved one, especially when those "windows" occur. Indeed, I had a greater sense of hope and imagination.

Time of Hope is the first chronological entry in C. P. Snow's series of novels Strangers and Brothers, and the third to be published. It depicts the beginning of Lewis Eliot's life, with a childhood in poverty in a small English town at the beginning of the 20th century. Lewis Eliot is walking home in the summer of 1914 when he is struck by an intuition of disaster, and he runs back home to find his mother having her fortune told with cards.

бесплатно, без регистрации и без смс. In January 2008, movie star Patrick Swayze was given the worst news of his life. What he hoped was just a stomach ache was actually stage four pancreatic cancer, a diagnosis that is fatal within a year for 79% of the people to whom it is given. Remarkably, Patrick is not just alive a year later but continuing his treatment, and responding well. But this book isn't just the story of Patrick's fight against cancer. In the public eye from the early 1980s, this is the story of a remarkable life and career. Intended as a low budget, straight-to-video.

The author, a geriatric psychiatrist, presents personal accounts of a dozen patients, illustrating the progression of Alzheimer's and sufferers' and family members' means of coping. Offers insight on diagnosis and treatment of the disease and promising research. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
