Jun 11, 2020

The Importance of Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)

When it comes to considering assisted living for yourself or a loved one, it's important to understand the role of Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and how they can impact daily life. ADLs refer to the essential tasks that individuals usually perform on a daily basis to maintain their overall well-being and independence. As we age, these activities may become more challenging, and that's where assisted living comes in to provide the necessary support and assistance.
