The More You Know…
The Activities of Daily Living are a series of basic activities performed by individuals on a daily basis necessary for independent living at home. There are many variations on the definition of the activities of daily living, but most medical professionals will agree there are 5 basic categories.
- Personal hygiene – bathing/showering, grooming, nail care, and oral care
- Dressing – the ability to make appropriate clothing decisions and physically dress/undress oneself
- Eating – the ability to feed oneself, though not necessarily the capability to prepare food
- Maintaining continence – both the mental and physical capacity to use a restroom, including the ability to get on and off the toilet and cleaning oneself
- Transferring/Mobility- moving oneself from seated to standing, getting in and out of bed, and the ability to walk independently from one location to another
Whether or not an individual is capable of performing these activities on their own or if they rely on a family caregiver for assistance to perform them serves as a comparative measure of their independence.
When assessing the Daily Living Essentials that are right for you as you age in place, also consider the following:
- Health: How is your overall health?
- Activity level: How active and independent are you?
- Life stage and style: What kinds of access and activities are important to you?
