(CC103) CC: Getting Through The Day (ADLs)
We call them ADLs – Activities of Daily Living – sometimes fun activities, sometimes difficult. This chapter adds tips for safely transferring and assisting an elder in walking to the Tool Kit. We’ll cover bathing, dressing and assisting with hygiene. We recently added information on understanding the importance of good nutrition and adequate hydration. You’ll learn techniques to encourage elders to eat and drink – which may become more difficult if there is a progressive disease. And what could be more fun than toileting?
