Overview of ADL Services
Many clients who hire an Orange County caregiver do so because they need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). ADLs refers to an individual’s primary care tasks that must be completed on a daily basis to continue to live independently.
ADL Services Provided:
- Getting dressed
- Safe mobility and transfers
- Eating a balanced diet
- Managing toileting duties or incontinence
While many seniors need assistance with some activities of daily living as they age, few require help with all tasks. For this reason, Salus Homecare of Orange County offers individualized care plans that address the tasks you need help with the most.
Salus Homecare of Orange County also respects the schedules and preferences of our clients. Our flexible scheduling means that we are there to help you at the times of day that are most convenient and for as many, or as few, days a week as you choose. This helps to make our professional caregiver services cost effective and affordable for most seniors.
