Designed to assess emotional and behavioral dysfunction associated with medical and psychiatric comorbidities of geriatric individuals who reside in long-term care (LTC) settings, the GRRAS documents the frequency, duration, and intensity of symptoms and plays an important role in establishing medical necessity for mental health services.

Three clinician rating forms gather targeted information

  • The Psychosocial Resistance to Activities of Daily Living Index (PRADLI) rating form is an 8-item measure that assesses the level of LTC residents’ resistance to and cooperation with staff in performing activities of daily living.
  • The Geriatric Multidimensional Pain/Illness Inventory (GMPI) rating form is a 14-item measure that assesses the perceptual, functional, and emotional concomitants of pain and illness as they have affected the resident’s abilities to perform activities.
  • The Geriatric Level of Dysfunction Scale (GLDS) rating form assesses the intensity, frequency, and duration of 20 behaviors that can potentially interfere with care provided in the LTC setting, such as agitation, wandering, and unsafe/impulsive behaviors.

Easily score and monitor progress over time

  • Percentile ranks and predetermined clinical raw score ranges were established based on a criterion-referenced approach.
  • Item and scale analyses ease progress tracking over time and monitoring response to intervention.
  • Visual profiles of single or repeated administrations enable you to easily identify trends in an individual’s rehabilitation process.
  • The unlimited-use GRRAS-SP scores and generates reports after hand-entry of demographic information and GRRAS scores. Three reports are available: a Score Report, a Progress Monitoring Report, and a Quick Note Report (for easy placement in a chart). To obtain comparisons between the client’s scores and those of others, the examiner can choose a comparison group (i.e., general unaffected, general affected, dementia, pain) for each report.
