What is ADL?
Activities for Daily Living (ADL) is a term used in healthcare to refer to daily self-care activities within an individual's place of residence, in outdoor environments, or both. Health professionals routinely refer to the ability or inability to perform ADLs as a measurement of the functional status of a person, particularly in regards to people with disabilities and the elderly. Basic ADLs consist of self-care tasks, including:
- Personal hygiene and grooming
- Meal preparation and feeding oneself
- Functional transfers ( e.g. getting out of bed)
- Ambulation (Walking without use of canes or crutches or using a wheelchair, should be able to safely maneuver stairs.)
