Abstract

The Cognitive Daisy (COG-D) is an innovative assessment system created to provide
healthcare staff with an instant snapshot of the cognitive status of older adults in
residential care. The COG-D comprises a flower head consisting of 15 colour coded
petals depicting information about: visual-spatial perception, comprehension,
communication, memory and attention. This study confirmed the practicality of the
COG-D protocol for assessing cognition in a sample of 33 older adults living in
residential care and endorsed the use of the COG-D as a tool for recognising the
cognitive status of care home residents.
