The Canterbury Wellbeing Scales (CWS) were developed to assess subjective wellbeing in people with mild to moderate dementias, family caregivers, and professional caregivers who care for this population. The CWS is an easy to use visual analogue scale that assesses ‘in the moment’ wellbeing. It is usually administered before and after an activity and can be a one-off or used over time. Activities include music, singing, making visual art, viewing visual art, museum (and non-museum) object handling, golf, engaging in an app on a tablet computer, and non-intervention social breaks. It is suitable for use by people in the community as well as researchers.
