Oldtimers and Alzheimer’s: The Descriptive Organization of Senility, Jaber F. Gubrium
Author’s description:

The book’s leading question is how do both experts and laypersons describe, from symptoms to diagnoses, what “oldtimers” disease is on the one hand, and on the other hand, how does that differ from what experts describe as Alzheimer’s? Perhaps surprisingly, there’s little or no essential difference. So the question then is: has a disease been foisted upon a normal condition of later life? This book is about the medicalization of experience.
