eFit – HCP: ADLs & IADLs
Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) are the essential tasks that each person needs to perform, on a regular basis, for basic survival and well-being. The term helps health care providers quickly communicate the level of assistance an individual might need or how their health is impacting their day-to-day life.
Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs) refer to activities that support daily life and are oriented toward interacting with your environment. IADLs are typically more complex than ADLs. They are important components of home and community life but can be easily delegated to another person.
