Say Hello to “The Most Powerful Assessment Tool You’ll Ever Use”

Since each person suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia is on his or her own level of functionality, it’s sometimes difficult to determine how to help a patient or loved-one improve their quality of life.

However, there are a few simple and effective methods for determining capability in sufferers of Alzheimer’s. One is called the Allen Cognitive Level Screen (ACLS), or the leather lacing tool test.

With just a few types of stitching, the ACLS can help caretakers and family members determine exactly what they can do to improve the patient’s life, based on what they are ABLE to do.
