ATTENTION! This section should be completed when planning discharge from hospital/rehabilitation center or at a later date. The form is designed to help the interviewer identify the services that will be needed in the community. It also suggests ideas for using existing resources in flexible and imaginative ways. The assessment should be based on both data from the examination and the informant's opinion considering the 3 last months. If these do not correspond, the interviewer must exercise clinical judgment in answering the questions and selecting a course of action.Exceptions are indicated for specific items. Otherwise, code as follows:
0= Normal/independent (as before the accident)
1= Independent but less possibilities (e.g. slowness or need for technical help)
2= Partly independent (needs human help or stimulation)
3= Severe dependence (most of the time)
