This is an approximately 40 page manual designed to help Law Enforcement personnal better understand the symptoms/problems associated with Alzheimer's/Dementia. Because of it's length I have divided it into sections to make it easier for printing or copying.
Beside and below each hole is a short description of what you will find under that topic. Just click on the hole and it will take you to that area.
*** Please note***
While this IS a manual, I'm afraid it may not print out like one. The original was created in Word Perfect which has formatting. HTML doesn't allow for that. If you would like to see it as it was originally intended you can now download it to disk by hitting the underlined text below. By the way, these files do not include the graphics.
