Our staff assists with what is known as Activities of Daily Living “ADLs.” The basic or physical ADLs are those skills required to manage one’s basic physical needs including personal hygiene or grooming, dressing, toileting, transferring or ambulating, and eating. The Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs), which include more complex activities that are related to the ability to live independently in the community. This would include activities such as e.g., managing finances and medications, food preparation, housekeeping, laundry.
We strive to foster as much independence as possible and encourage our residents to maintain their abilities as far as the physical ADLs for as long as possible. As far as the Instrumental ADLs, we handle those along with the family member as our residents are unable to live independently.
