What are the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)?

The Activities of Daily Living are a series of basic activities performed by individuals on a daily basis necessary for independent living at home or in the community. There are many variations on the definition of the activities of daily living but most organizations agree there are 5 basic categories.

  1. Personal hygiene – bathing, grooming and oral care2. Dressing – the ability to make appropriate clothing decisions and physically dress oneself3. Eating – the ability to feed oneself though not necessarily to prepare food

    4. Maintaining continence – both the mental and physical ability to use a restroom

    5. Transferring – moving oneself from seated to standing and get in and out of bedWhether or not an individual is capable of performing these activities on their own or if they rely on a caregiver to perform the ADLs serves a comparative measure of their independence.

What are the Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs)?

IADLs are actions that are important to being able to live independently but are not necessarily required activities on a daily basis.  The instrumental activities are more subtle than the Activities of Daily Living. They can help determine with greater detail the level of assistance required by an elderly or disabled person. The IADLs include:

  1. Basic communication skills – such as using a regular phone, mobile phone, email or the Internet2. Transportation – either by driving oneself, arranging rides or the ability to use public transportation3. Meal preparation – meal planning, preparation, storage and the ability to safely use kitchen equipment

    4. Shopping – the ability to make appropriate food and clothing purchase decisions

    5. Housework – doing laundry, cleaning dishes and maintaining a hygienic place of residence

    6. Managing medications – taking accurate dosages at the appropriate times, managing re-fills and avoiding conflicts

    7. Managing personal finances – operating within a budget, writing checks, paying bills and avoiding scams
