Category:Activities of Daily Living

The Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) are a series of basic activities that are performed by individuals on a daily basis as deemed necessary for independent living. There are many different levels of understanding for ADLs, but most organisations and professions agree on the following basic activities:

1. Personal hygiene : (bathing/showering, grooming, nail care, and oral care). 2. Dressing: (the ability to make appropriate clothing decisions and physically dress/undress oneself). 3. Eating: (the ability to feed oneself, though not necessarily the capability to prepare food). 4. 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). 5. 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).
