Activities of Daily Living


Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) refer to certain basic daily tasks necessary to maintain a person's health and safety. A person is considered unable to perform ADLs if he or she requires the physical assistance of another person to perform the activities. If a person is unable to perform two or more ADLs, then he or she can apply for benefits.


Under the LivingCare policy, ADLs are:

  • Bathing the ability to wash, either by sponge bath, including the task of getting into or out of the tub or shower.

  • Continence the ability to maintain control of bowel or bladder function, or the ability to perform associated personal hygiene (including caring for a catheter or colostomy bag).

  • Dressing the ability to put on and take off clothing, and any medically necessary braces, fasteners or artificial limbs.

  • Eating the ability to get food, after it has been prepared for you, into the body from a receptacle (such as a plate or cup).

  • Transferring the ability to move into or out of bed, chair or wheelchair.

  • Toileting the ability to get to and from the toilet, get on and off the toilet, and to perform associated personal hygiene.
