Overview of IADL Services
While ADLs are essential functions that impact health and happiness, IADLs, or instrumental tasks of daily living, are equally important. These are more complex tasks that allow an individual to manage a household and also contribute to health and longevity.
IADL Services Provided:
- Bill and bank account management
- Safely taking medications
- Using a telephone or computer for communication
- Maintaining a calendar / scheduling appointments
As parents age, many begin to ask for assistance with IADLs from their adult children and other trusted relatives. Assistance might also be needed when individuals are faced with a disability or cognitive decline.
Salus Homecare of San Gabriel Valley has stepped in to help many seniors and individuals with disabilities with IADLs when family and friends are not available or cannot fully meet all needs. Our individualized services make it easy to receive help that is flexible and cost effective from a compassionate, reliable caregiver who is invested in supporting your goals.
