The objective of this study was to improve validity and reliability estimates of the Index for Social Engagement (ISE) for long-term care. After exploring content validity and internal consistency in Dutch and Canadian data, two ISE items were dropped, and two new items were added. Reliability of this Revised ISE (RISE) was tested in 189 nursing home residents. It appeared that the RISE has enhanced reliability estimates, especially in residents with cognitive impairment.The RISE for long-term care improves the existing index by including additional dimensions of social engagement and by increasing the reliability of results for residents with cognitive impairment.
