Leading ethicists and clinicians from the United States and Europe explore ethical and scientific concerns about the diagnosis and prognosis of Alzheimer disease and the challenges arising from applying palliative procedures to its symptoms. "A short book review cannot do justice to the magnitude and worth of this book... It is a compendium of hope." -- Ageing and Society "Books like this, which take a global view of the effects of disease, are much needed. All of us working in palliative care would benefit from reading this book as it exposes assumptions derived from the treatment mostly of cancer patients and encourages us to review our thoughts on the intrinsic value of all life, however opaque." -- Palliative Medicine "The editors ought to be congratulated for creating a space that allows us to retell our individual and social stories of dying with dementia." -- New England Journal of Medicine "Offers valuable insights into the philosophy and practice of palliative care in AD from perspectives of a group of American and European experts... It raises important questions and poses solutions to a variety of pressing clinical issues." -- American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias Ruth B.
