About us

Cognitive Daisy

The Cognitive Daisy is an innovative assessment system created to provide healthcare staff with an instant snapshot of the cognitive status of older adults to help ensure the highest quality of care.

The aim of the Cognitive Daisy is to give a concise, visual description of a person’s cognitive status within five different domains. Whether a person is likely to experience problems with these skills in daily life is reflected in performance on our specially designed test.

The results are used to adjust interaction thereby improving communication, reducing agitation and enhancing person-centred care. It is not a diagnostic tool and so cannot show if someone has dementia or not, but it is a useful guide to a person’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses.
