Activities of Daily Living ( ADL)

Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) 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. Generally, the ability or inability to perform ADLs serves as a measurement of the functional status of a person of any age.

The degrees of “help or assistance” can vary from “just a little bit of help needed” to “full assistance needed” in meal preparation, walking, driving, bathing, taking medications and other activities of daily living.
