What is the difference between the terms ADLs and IADLs?
Among the most difficult aspects of aging is the eventual inability to
perform important daily tasks. Determining an individual’s limitations is
the first step we take in thoughtfully developing a care plan that provides
the appropriate amount of assistance to each client.
The two most commonly referenced groups of tasks are Activities of
Daily Living (ADLs) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs).
ADLs are everyday personal-care activities that are fundamental to caring
for oneself and maintaining independence. They include eating, bathing,
dressing, toileting, mobility and continence. IADLs are self-care tasks that
require more complex thinking and organization, such as cooking, using
the telephone, taking medications, cleaning and managing money.
For more than 20 years, Comfort Home Care has been assisting our
clients with safely aging in place. We invite interested seniors or their adult
children to contact us to schedule a complimentary assessment with one of
our Transitional Care Specialists.

Why should someone begin to think about senior living options
and what should they look for?
Engaged senior living isn’t just about supportive services, although that
can be one piece of the decision-making process. Choosing a senior living
residence that provides you with a strong sense of community and personal
fulfillment will ensure that you are living your best life. As an older adult, you
should be thoroughly enjoying each and every day.
Charles E. Smith Life Communities has award-winning lifestyle and
leisure programs with that goal in mind. Whether it be listening to the beautiful sounds of our in-house classically trained musical trio, enjoying a fine
kosher dining experience or being part of an excursion to local attractions
with friends, finding a vibrant community is paramount. With all the amenities available to our residents, our primary care for older adults at Hirsh
Health Center is a bonus to those who want access to the care imperative to
our well-being as we age.
