Grief in Alzheimer's disease and other dementias
Review of the work
Dementias are syndromes that present with significant cognitive deterioration that exposes all those affected (both patients and relatives) to a series of losses from the moment of diagnosis until the death of the patient. This publication deals with the issue of grief in dementia, from a broad and non-pathological perspective, seeking to understand the psychological processes that family members and patients go through during the coping with the different vital losses that take place during the course of dementia.
