How's your memory? With each passing year, do you find it hard to remember names of friends and neighbors, birthdays, and phone numbers? Do you feel scared that you may now be suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s? Based on US statistics, more than 5 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s dementia in 2014. And one American every 67 seconds develops this illness. In 2011, about 800, 000 Canadians have memory impairment, including dementia. If the trend continues, around 1.4 million will suffer from it by 2031. In First Aid Tips for Memory Loss, Dr. Rayel has introduced the CARE approach as first aid for memory loss. This practical approach consists of a four-step process that describes how to recognize memory impairment early, what you can do once it is recognized, what psychiatric disorders to consider as possible causes, and how you can deal with it. The book is divided in four parts. Part 1 deals with the mental health first aid concepts: The CARE Approach, HEAL Yourself, HELP Others, and ABCs of first aid. Part 2 focuses on relevant coping skills and lifestyle changes to prevent or slow down memory loss. Part 3 is about brief memory screens that can be done at home. And Part 4 dwells on first aid with emphasis on memory impairment, its signs and symptoms, possible disorders that lead to it, and early intervention strategies. In some chapters, hypothetical case scenarios were included to showcase and explain the main ideas and concepts. In summary, First Aid Tips for Memory Loss offers the four practical steps in keeping a healthy brain and in slowing down forgetfulness.
