A scale produced from the Resident Assessment Instrument MDS 2.0© (RAI-MDS 2.0©) and Resident Assessment Instrument-Home Care (RAI-HC©) systems to evaluate a person's cognitive impairment. It combines information mainly on a person's ability to make daily decisions, their ability to make themselves understood, and their memory impairment. CPS scores range from 0 (intact) to 6 (very severe impairment).
