Abstract

This new edition of the classic assessment determines a patient's or client's ability to function in basic living skills. Easily administered and appropriate for use with many populations and in many settings, this versatile assessment assists in identifying areas in which a person can perform and where he or she needs assistance. The tool is helpful with many other populations and in many settings, including older adults in nursing facilities, inpatient units, and outpatient settings; clients in acute-care units in hospitals; people with acquired brain injury; and adolescents in living skill training programs.

KELS tests 13 living skills in five areas: (1) self-care, (2) safety and health, (3) money management, (4) community mobility and telephone, and (5) employment and leisure participation. Administration combines interview questions and tasks and is easy to learn. It can be administered in a short period of time, usually in approximately 45 minutes. In this edition, safety photos have been updated, and electronic banks and electronic devices are included as downloadable supplemental files. Fillable score forms and other administration forms are also available as downloads.
