Since it was first published, the Pool Activity Level (PAL) instrument has become the framework for activity- based care systems in a variety of settings for clients with dementia. Following two years of feedback from practitioners and carers, the author has refined the instrument, expanding its use to form occupational profiles for people who have had strokes and those with learning disabilities as well as those with dementia.

This substantially revised edition includes photocopiable activity checklists and plans which take into account users' life histories and help to match abilities with activities, as well as new features such as an outcome sheet and reformatted checklists.

Guiding the reader through a series of clear, practical steps and using case studies to enable them to understand, plan and implement activities, this is an essential resource for any practitioner or carer wanting to provide fulfilling occupation for clients with cognitive impairments.

The instrument is now standardised and will also be of interest to strategic level providers and commissioners of health and social care services as a standardised assessment and outcome measure.

In the draft practice guideline for dementia, The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE, 2006), the PAL instrument is recommended for activity of daily living skill training and for activity planning.

My 92-year-old aunt has Lewy-Body dementia. I was trained as an occupational therapist at the London (UK) School of OT many years ago. I currently work in Pediatrics in the US. After a fall caused by autonomic abnormalities - orthostatic hypotension - or sudden loss of blood pressure, Peggy was admitted to Queen's Medical Center in Nottingham for her injuries. Her ability to participate in meaningful activity was eventually assessed using the Jackie Pool Activity Level Instrument for dementia. I was intrigued. Was Peggy at the Planned Activity Level, the Exploratory, the Sensory or the Reflex Activity Level. This book is written for and can be understood by carers of people with dementia. It's possible that my training in occupational therapy gives me a greater understanding of background and context for use of the instrument but it is very accessible to the general reader. I am using it to help Peggy's extended family know what she can and can't do and what supports and accommodations she would need to be able to take an interest in as well as participate in a meaningful activity. Peggy's awareness of her situation is greater than her physical abilities so we are discussing age-appropriate activities such as cooking, gardening and self-care over more child-friendly activities such as glueing and sticking. I wanted to help relatives and carers see Peggy's strengths and abilities so she wouldn't overhear comments such as, she's lazy, clumsy, bored, disinterested or self-absorbed. I have found the book extraordinarily helpful in this respect and hope you will too. Peggy's niece.
