PC7.JORM INTRODUCTION

PC7. NOW WE WANT YOU TO REMEMBER WHAT [Q371-R FIRST NAME] WAS LIKE TWO YEARS AGO AND TO COMPARE IT WITH WHAT (HE/SHE) IS LIKE NOW. TWO YEARS AGO WAS IN (FILL:1985/1986). I WILL READ SITUATIONS WHERE [Q371-R FIRST NAME] HAS TO USE (HIS/HER) MEMORY OR INTELLIGENCE AND WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO INDICATE WHETHER THIS HAS IMPROVED, STAYED THE SAME, OR GOTTEN WORSE IN THAT SITUATION OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS. NOTE THE IMPORTANCE OF COMPARING (HIS/HER) PRESENT PERFORMANCE WITH TWO YEARS AGO. SO IF TWO YEARS AGO [Q371-R FIRST NAME] ALWAYS FORGOT WHERE (HE/SHE) HAD LEFT THINGS, AND (HE/SHE) STILL DOES, THEN THIS WOULD BE CONSIDERED "NOT MUCH CHANGE".
