You are caring for a person with dementia|
We would like you to tell us:
How was the person with dementia doing during the last 7 days?
What worried the person with dementia’s family or friends?
Which problems did you or someone else encounter during nursing care and social care?
All questions always concern the last 7 days
Please write clearly
|ProInfirmis recommendations are well written and clear: ‘7 days’ instead of the words ‘last week’ is the better alternative|
|Date today (day/month/year)||‘Date today’ is clearer than just ‘date’|
|No appetite (don’t want to eat)||Clear; a lot of people with dementia have a poor appetite. The English term is not accurate in the Swiss context|
|Problems with teeth||The change in the pre-final-version is clear|
|Is tired or sleepy during the day||Sleepiness is more apparent than drowsiness; explanatory example is not needed|
|Impaired mobility (trouble walking, cannot get up, falls)||Impaired mobility is apparent, especially in the context of kinesthetics|
|Difficulty communicating (speaking or any kind of body language)||Addition in the brackets is straightforward and also necessary|
|Can’t sleep (during the night)||Addition in the brackets is precise and also necessary|
|Agitation||Discussion about the explanation in the brackets. However, it is not necessary for the Swiss context because of the serial trial intervention assessment (STI)|
|Has she/he been feeling anxious or agitated?||Changes in the German version are apparent due to the usage of the STI|
|Do you think she/he felt sad or unhappy?||Sad and unhappy are both necessary|
|Has she/he been able to talk to others or get in touch in some way (team, family, residents)?||Addition with ‘positively’ is not necessary|
|If there was a problem, were you able to do something to resolve it? (help with hearing aids, organise foot care or smooth food)||Practical problems are to be considered in the context of everyday life|
