Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)

This describes day-to-day functions that people do without help, such as:

  • Bathing
  • Dressing
  • Grooming
  • Eating
  • Bed mobility
  • Transferring
  • Toileting
  • Walking

Home care assessment to establishment the level of assistance needed is based on the patient's ability to perform a certain number of ADLs. In addition, many insurance policies determine eligibility for benefits on the ability of the patient to carry out these tasks.
