Handbook for Assessing Capacity in Older Adults

That American Psychological Association has some informative handbooks (one for lawyers, one for judges and one for psychologists) to help you assess capacity in older adults.  For lawyers this is a great tool to help determine whether a person has capacity to execute documents such as Wills, Powers of Attorney, Revocation of Power of Attorney, etc.  It is also very useful to determine whether a guardianship (full or limited) is appropriate.
