Written in plain language, this definitive handbook examines: the biology and physiology of dementia; neurological and medical complications associated with dementia; the best practices to meet the needs of aging clients with intellectual disabilities and their families; policy issues raised by the growing number of aging individuals with intellectual disabilities; and case studies of affected individuals." "The editors take a practical approach to diagnosis, assessment, treatment, management, and care, making this book a useful guide for both students and trained professionals. Practitioners and service providers will find Dementia. Aging, and Intellectual Disabilities to be an essential resource for developing programs and dealing effectively with the emotional, psychological, and social impact of dementia on affected individuals, their families, and care providers."--Jacket."
