Healthy Aging Brain Center - Self Report Monitor

The HABC Monitor is an instrument developed for the purpose of assessing and monitoring symptoms of dementia over time. The instrument covers the four clusters of dementia symptoms: cognitive, functional, behavioral and mood, and caregiver stress. The HABC Monitor depends on self-reports and informal caregiver reports that do not require the presence of a clinician or facilitator and can be completed through paper, web, or telephone based templates.
