Overview of ADL Services
Activities of daily living (ADLs) include tasks with different levels of complexity that every individual must complete on a daily basis. Effectively managing ADLs supports aging in place or remaining at home with a health diagnosis or disability.
ADL Services Provided:
- Walking or using a scooter or wheelchair
- Meeting caloric needs with food
For healthy, young individuals, ADLs are often quite easy to accomplish independently. With age or when illnesses or disabilities arise, they become more complex due to lost gross or fine motor skills or mental capacity. This is when help is most appropriate and beneficial.
Salus Homecare of South Bay provides the right level of support for every individual. During our assessment, we discuss your needs and goals and work together to develop an effective, empowering plan of care. With our assistance, many clients continue to feel safe and secure at home and while completing important activities of daily living.
