Abstract

Statement of context: Activity participation is beneficial for the wellbeing of people with dementia; however, care staff and caregivers experience difficulties with facilitating activity for this client group. Critical reflection on practice: This practice analysis outlines the therapy process conducted by an occupational therapist using the Pool Activity Level instrument, to support meaningful activity for a person with dementia, in an acute inpatient environment. Implications for practice: The Pool Activity Level instrument enables people with dementia to engage in meaningful activity. Occupational therapists are well positioned to integrate this tool within daily care, to enable all staff and caregivers to engage alongside a person with dementia in activity at an appropriate level.
