Activities Of Daily Living Assistance

Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) are a critical part of lifestyles in people of all ages. It often becomes a lot harder for people to handle these activities as they get older and older, however. That’s why assistance often becomes essential. The six primary activities that are under the ADL umbrella are bathing, eating meals, taking care of toilet duties, getting dressed, continence and walking. If you have a family member who could benefit from guidance with any of these things, The Camellia could be the perfect assisted living facility for you. Our trained team members help residents with all sorts of instrumental activities of daily living, too. We’re a highly rated assisted living community that goes the extra mile. Senior well-being is one of our biggest objectives.

Understanding ADLs

Activities of daily living cover many important aspects of healthy and functional lifestyles.

Our team members provide invaluable support to residents who require help with:

  • Finding suitable apparel to wear in the morning.
  • Putting clothing on.
  • Brushing teeth and general grooming.
  • Bathroom use.
  • Meal consumption.
  • Mobility.

Our attentive staff members frequently assist residents who have trouble rising. They frequently aid residents who are unable to brush their hair and floss their teeth as well.


Assistance With Instrumental Activities Of Daily Living

The Camellia isn’t just an assisted living facility that concentrates on the basics. We’re also a center that concentrates on instrumental activities that may not always be necessary for standard daily existence.

Strong examples of IADLs are:

  • Telephone, mobile device, computer and Internet use.
  • Medicine administration.
  • Finance management.
  • Laundry and housekeeping.
  • Food preparation.
  • Use of public transportation.
  • Shopping.

If you’re looking for an assisted living facility that promotes comprehensive assistance with these types of activities, The Camellia at Gulf Breeze is a solid choice.

Varying Levels Of Assistance

Some people have trouble with all kinds of daily activities. There are other people, however, who are only able to handle certain categories of daily activities. That’s why nursing home, assisted living and in-home care plans are all readily available to aging individuals. Assisted living facility residents are often able to handle certain tasks. An assisted living resident may be able to take care of food preparation without a problem. She may, however, have trouble with medication administration. The Camellia carefully evaluates all residents in order to figure out their specific levels of need. No two residents are the same.

South Seas offers all-encompassing and detailed assessments that analyze factors such as:

  • Toileting.
  • Bathing.
  • Medication use.
  • Mobility.
  • Housekeeping abilities.
  • Mental status.
  • Hygiene abilities.
  • Overall behavior.

We can provide your loved one with an activities of daily living assessment that’s thorough and meticulous.
