Independent Living Scales® (ILS®)

Product Description

Determine to what degree adults are capable of caring for themselves and their property. Use this reliable standardised tool to identify areas of competence in forensic cases and to determine the most appropriate living setting for adults who are experiencing a decline in cognitive functioning.

Get performance-based results from older adults and those who have brain injuries, emotional disturbances, dementia or mild intellectual disability. Assess abilities in five areas:

  • Memory and orientation
  • Managing money
  • Managing home and transportation
  • Health and safety
  • Social adjustment

With item scoring, differentiate between individuals who are not capable of understanding the issue, who understand the issue but need help in resolving it, and who can independently address it. Clients' adaptations to challenging situations are given partial credit.

Administer the 68 ILS items in about 45 minutes, and score the test in about 10 minutes. Screen clients before testing, for their ability to see, hear, speak, read, write and sign their names. Use the screening test to determine whether to administer the test orally or in written form, and as an aid in interpreting performance on the five scales.
