The comprehensive assessment also includes input from family members, especially the primary caregiver. Input regarding history of cognitive decline, relevant past illnesses and recent life changes is obtained. Information is collected to determine both the level of understanding of the causes and progression of dementia as well as the current skills required to render effective meaningful dementia care. The caregiver’s availability to continue social, recreational, and health needs are also evaluated.

The results of a comprehensive assessment provide the basis for the design of meaningful care plans, document the need for appropriate services, and result in optimal dementia care.
