Health care has always been a challenge even in the best of circumstances, but when caring for a loved one has become more than you can physically, medically or emotionally handle there are options available to the patient and their family or care giver that will enhance your loved one’s life and well being, without ever having to place them in a skilled nursing facility. Home health care is an emerging field of patient care that can mean the difference, literally, between life and death.

Activities of Daily Living Checklist

Published: 08/15/2011 by Senior Care Society in Caregiving

Activities of Daily Living, ADL's, are helpful in determining the level of care that is needed when working with home care agencies or looking to find long term care. Use this checklist as a care assessment tool to determine what ADL's they will need assistance with. If you are uncomfortable doing this yourself, you can ask your medical doctor to perform this assessment or other professionals such as a geriatric care manager or licensed clinical social worker.
