“The assessment tools helped us devise activities for a gentleman that suited his abilities at this moment in time. He came out at sensory level so we have now been able to look at activities that he is able to manage comfortably and he is happier. We have now made a weekly plan for him, at his own level and a variety to suit his mood and cognition on that day. It has made such a difference and improved his days.

The PAL book was an essential tool for us to be able to identify his functional ability and then obtain resources to develop meaningful activities for him. This has not only improved his day but others who do not have dementia, but have enjoyed the group activities. We are going to use the tool for all of them so their activities can be more tailored to their individual needs.

The book was more than worth the money I paid for it and has opened up a stream of ideas from staff.

Thank-you so much for your help and input.”
