While being able to perform ADLs without support or asking for appropriate assistance certainly makes aging in place a more realistic goal, managing instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) also promotes independence and a higher quality of life. These tasks include a set of skills that individuals must accomplish most days when living in the home environment.
ADL Services Provided:
- Preparing meals
- Meeting transportation needs
- Paying bills
- Safely managing medications
- Shopping and errands
- Communicating in ways other than in person (computer, telephone)
Cognitive decline or physical limitations due to chronic conditions are the primary reason why a senior needs help with IADLs. This is also a primary cause why some move to a facility before they are ready. Having the right support makes a difference.
