ASSESSMENT:
The LTC‐QoL assessment is repeated over two consecutive weeks to allow for variability of events. The person is asked to consider what has happened over the previous week when answering questions. For those living with dementia, the proxy assessor needs to be familiar with the person and have observed that person over the past week in order to make informed responses to assessment questions.

SCORING:
Each column is added up for weekly score (maximum of 45 points) which is then divided by 9 to give a score out of 5 for each week of the assessment period.. Add both weekly scores to get total score /10.
