Yes interesting – I was also reading an article that I’ll try and find that suggested we should do a simple cognitive skills test on clients to see if they have the early stages of dimentia and would this influence their ability to understand and remember what we say to them.

We currently use a ‘mini-cog’ assessment with certain clients to gain insight to their processing ability – happy to share for those that are interested.
