Overview of ADL Services
ADLs are the basic activities of daily living that we all complete on a daily basis. For many of us, these tasks sound simplistic and can be taken for granted. For a person with a disability or illness, however, these activities can sometimes be challenging or even impossible to complete independently.
ADL Services Provided:
- Washing the body
- Getting dressed
- Remaining continent or effectively managing incontinence
- Ambulation / transfers
- Meal preparation
Accepting assistance with activities of daily living allows individuals of all ages to maintain a feeling of normalcy despite their health conditions or diagnoses. With the proper level of assistance, many are able to remain at home, surrounded by loved ones and enjoying their favorite activities.
Salus Homecare Salt Lake City has raised the bar when it comes to what to expect from a home care provider who is assisting with ADLs. Our caregivers are established professionals who are dedicated to their clients and always provide individualized, one on one care that supports their personal goals and respects the role of valued family caregivers. We want to empower our clients and improve their lives by listening to their needs and providing the specific assistance they need short term, long term or intermittently.
