Description

The EASY-Care Assessment is designed to be a holistic geriatric assessment by measuring an older patients' physical, mental, and social well-being with a focus on their quality of life.

Abstract

The EASY-Care Assessment was found to have high levels of test-retest reliability for seven single items (>0.70) and a disability score of 0.87. In terms of validity, the Easy-Care Assessment discriminated based on levels of deprivation. For more information on its psychometric properties, review the following two articles: Philp I.
