About this Directory
This directory was born out of a hard copy file that Herb had created with 50 + folders and 200 + articles. Herb knows the subjects that caregivers would be looking for on the Alzheimers dementia journey. I recognized that using this concept for the website would be very efficient. It is like an old school library subject index file but using hyperlinks and the web. Overall it can be faster than a search tool because those often do not return what the person really needs until they try many times.
