This PELI questionnaire asks nursing home residents about 16 preferences for daily living that are consistent with the CMS Minimum Data Set (MDS) 3.0 Section F – Preferences for Customary Routine and Activities. The PELI supplements the MDS by delving into the specific aspects of resident preferences.

In addition, the following photos were developed to help people with cognitive, communication, and hearing challenges increase understanding of the PELI preference prompts.  The pictures can be used as a supplement to the traditional PELI while being shown on a computer or tablet during assessment administration. The PELI team is in the process of validating the pictures attached with adults with communication challenges. Because of this, we would appreciate your feedback on ways we can improve the PELI photos. For the interview script & instructions for using the photos during preference assessment interviews, and to download the PELI MDS Section F 16-Item photos, click the documents below.
