Recently I became certified to administer the Reality Comprehension Clock Test offered through RCCT Press, Toledo, OH. It is capable of determining how much a person is understanding, their ability to process and follow instructions and their functional level. It also reveals whether they are a fall risk, their Stage of Deterioration and potential deficits. There may be instances when an infection is present that has not yet been diagnosed.
Studies done indicated a strong relational link between the Mini-Mental State Examination and the Reality Comprehension Clock Test in determining the status of an individual’s brain. This test can help families who are uncertain about how much care is required for their loved one to get a realistic picture of what they are capable of handling and how they can plan activities at which they will feel successful.
