ADL (Activities of Daily Living) Retaining/Education

Activities of daily living comprise all of the personal day to day tasks one typically does on a routine basis, such as bathing, dressing, grooming, and toileting, eating, and completing functional transfers.  Sometimes with age, or due to an injury or diagnosis, these routine tasks can become more difficult.  This is when OT can help!

  • OT works with the patient to identify specific needs/deficits in ADL routine
  • Provide education and adaptive techniques to increase independence and ease of completing everyday tasks such as: Bathing, Dressing, Grooming, Toileting
  • Education and/or practice utilizing adaptive equipment
  • Education on safety technique to utilize during ADL routine
