Alzheimer Resource Manual (ARM)
The first edition of the Alzheimer Resource Manual,
published in 1995, was well received by care providers in long-term care settings. Individuals and groups across North America ordered the Manual and raved about its usability in transfering research into practice. All 750 copies of the original printing were sold. Continued demand for the Manual led to the development of the 2nd edition published in 2000 which included updated versions of the original material and additional chapters introducing new material.
The Manual is a comprehensive collection of information about Alzheimer's Disease and related dementias. Presented in a large three ring binder with 10 sections, ARM provides guidance for diagnosis, treatment and care of persons affected.
