Read the full product description

The Functional Living Scale – UK version (TFLSUK) is an ecologically valid, performance based measure of functional abilities with an emphasis on instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) skills. TFLSUK assesses an individual’s ability to perform a variety of tasks that support independent functioning in the community. Brief and easy to use, the measure is especially well-suited for use in assisted living and nursing home settings.

Users & Applications

TFLSUK can be used in comprehensive assessments, to support placement decisions, aid treatment planning, evaluate treatment outcomes, and monitor disease progression.

It can be administered by a variety of professionals including:

  • Neuropsychologists and clinical psychologists working with all age ranges, to determine appropriate level of care
  • Therapists, to evaluate changes in level of care for individuals
  • Researchers in pharmaceuticals companies, to help conduct Alzheimer/dementia drug efficacy trials.

The TFLSUK covers four functional domains:

  • Time – Assesses the ability to use clocks and calendars
  • Money and Calculation – Assesses the ability to count money and write cheques
  • Communication – Assesses the ability to prepare a snack, use a phone and phone books
  • Memory – Assesses the ability to remember simple information and to take medications

Subscale cumulative percentages and an overall T-Score can be used to help determine the examinee’s ability to function independently.

Benefits

  • Assesses functional abilities quickly and easily
  • Screens for dementia with a tool focused on skills likely to be affected by cognitive decline
  • Monitors functional decline and disease progression
  • Monitors treatment/drug efficacy
  • Determines level of care required and adapt treatment plans
  • Linked with key tools including the WAIS-IVUK and TOPFUK

The UK Project

A validation study of TFLSUK was conducted on 250 UK adults between the ages of 16 and 90.
