Learn more about the PAL Engagement Measure:
The QCS PAL Engagement Measure is a valuable addition to the QCS Dementia Centre that measures the observed level of engagement in a chosen activity for people with dementia. By recording aspects of engagement in four areas: cognitive, physical, emotional and social, over a series of sessions, carers can identify where they should focus their efforts to help the person with dementia improve their engagement.
Thanks to its person-centred approach, QCS PAL Engagement Measure objectively identifies the level of service the individual needs and monitors the impact of your activity provision, while promoting meaningful engagement for your service users. In addition, this evidence of service delivery together with the tracking of changes in an individual’s engagement over time provides reassurance to the individual’s family members. It is also confirmation to regulators of the use of best practices to support individuals’ participation in everyday life.
