Overview of ADL Services
Activities of daily living, or ADLs, are essential tasks. As individuals, we all complete these tasks on a daily basis, and the inability to perform them safely or receive appropriate assistance can be a primary indicator of an individual’s inability to remain at home.
ADL Services Provided:
- Bathing or taking a shower
- Getting dressed in clothes that are clean and appropriate for the weather
- Consuming food on a regular schedule
- Ambulation and transfers
- Maintaining oral health
When performing activities of daily living independently becomes difficult, help is needed. Accepting professional support can help to keep an individual safe and may reduce opportunities for future accidents and injuries that can result in further setbacks.
Salus Homecare of San Fernando Valley’s professional caregivers assist clients with many activities of daily living. Caregivers form relationships with their clients and treat them with dignity and respect which often makes it easier for individuals to accept the assistance that they need in order to safely remain at home.
