Salus ADLs Services

Many patients who hire a professional caregiver do so because they find fundamental daily tasks, or activities of daily living (ADLs), to be challenging to perform independently. ADLs refers to certain essential tasks. We all must perform them to safely live independently. The ability to perform ADLs directly correlates with the ability to remain safe and comfortable at home.

The aging process or an illness can make it difficult for seniors to perform certain basic activities and continue to live independently. Many find that they need help with some tasks and not others. The number of ADLs they need assistance with often changes over time. Salus Homecare develops an individualized care plan for each patient that offers this personal level of support in daily life. Our goal is to help when you need it and encourage independence when you don’t. When a senior’s goal is to remain at home and avoid assisted living, nursing homes or other care facilities, our care plan can help them to accomplish this.

Salus Homecare respects the daily life schedules and routines of the seniors we serve. Our long term care services scheduling is very flexible to fit in with the patients routines. We are available hourly or around the clock to assist with basic tasks at home. Our caregivers assist during the workday, in the evenings and on weekends and holidays. This means family caregivers know their loved ones are always supported in continuing to live independently.

We had several (close to a dozen) care providers over the course of the 4 months of home care needs. Nearly all were professional and performed at or above expectations. The exceptions were noted and corrective action was provided by the Salus leadership.

I was very impressed by the excellent care, concern and support that I received from my physical therapist and nurse. I appreciate how professional and knowledgeable both of them were and gentle too.

Frequently Asked Questions about Salus ADL Services

If you don’t see your question, please give us a call: (888) 725-8742

Salus Homecare’s caregivers provide all levels of assistance with activities of daily living (basic ADLs) and instrumental activities of daily living (ADLs and IADLs) from stand-by help to the highest level of care. As your ability to preform ADLs independently changes, we will continue to work with you to create an individualized plan of care that promotes your independence in daily life and helps you to remain safe and comfortable during all essential daily tasks.

While our professional caregivers are not medical professionals, they do receive appropriate training to handle medical emergencies that can arise in daily life. For most situations, this will involve calling 911.  Additionally, Salus Homecare always has a staff member available to assist our caregivers with handling emergencies that may unexpectedly arise. Finally, consider that providing a senior with the right level of support with ADLs and IADLs can help to prevent accidents and slips or falls and prevent emergency situations.

Salus Homecare takes pride in our ability to meet the needs of our clients on their schedule. Whether you prefer bathing, dressing, and attending to your other activities of daily living (ADLs) in the evenings, during the day or just a few days a week, our professional caregivers can visit at a time that suites you and your family, for as few or as many hours as you deem necessary to reaching your goal of continuing to live independently. Whether you receive respite care or around the clock support, our goal is always to make your life easier and ensure you have the support you need.

In the simplest of terms, ADLs (Activities of Daily Living) cover physical functioning like bathing, dressing, meeting your toileting needs, and safe mobility, while IADLs (Instrumental Activities of Daily Living) include tasks that are important for independence and comfort but don’t necessarily pose risk of immediate harm if not completed successfully. Examples of daily living IADLs include maintaining a home, managing finances and paying bills, and shopping or running errands. Many seniors receiving home care services benefit from support with both ADLs and IADLs.
