Abigail 2nd Aug 2019 Dmentia Befriending Officer
Hello all,

I run a dementia befriending service. I am looking for a new tool to demonstrate that my service is beneficial to individuals with dementia. I need a questionnaire that I can complete with a service user at different periods and report on the difference with an improvement in their level of engagement and overall mood.

Thanks in advance

You can make a chart listing the activities that they engaged in their level of engagement and how it made them feel
You can use a form something like this suggested on golden Carers

Then you can decide which activities were successful and offer more activities like this
You can also use the tool kit offered by golden Carers if you want to do this on a computer
