Disability Assessment For Dementia (DAD) is a test designed to evaluate the ability to carry out daily activities (AVD) in persons with cognitive disorders such as dementia. It is useful to define deficits in cognitive areas that could interfere in the execution of AVD. This scale offers the novelty of systematic evaluation for each area of AVD, independently of whether the subject has the capacity to carry it out or not, and even if the subject had it prior and is capable of planning and organization. It consists of 40 items that evaluate the functional capacity for the basic activities of daily life (AVDB), instrumental activities of daily life (AVDI) and leisure activities. This tool was adapted to Spanish and validated by Sanchez-Perez and colleagues.
