WEEKLY COMMON TERMINOLOGY AND DEFINITIONS

 

Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s) -

 

These are the personal functional activities fundamental for self-care and required for an individual for continued well-being.

 

They are generally recognized in elder care as including: Ambulation, Bathing, Continence (Incontinence), Dressing, Eating/Feeding, Toileting, and Transferring.

 

ADL’s can be divided into three categories:

  • Independent - means the individual can perform the ADL without help

  • Assistance - means the individual can perform some part of an activity, but cannot do it entirely alone

  • Dependent - means the individual cannot perform any part of an activity; it must be done entirely by someone else.
