Elderly dementia can make activities of daily living (ADL) challenging. Caregivers can provide proper senior care and encourage independence in seniors.
As dementia progresses, there is a steady deterioration of abilities, including the capacity to perform activities of daily living, or ADL for short.
ADL such as eating, dressing, showering, and eventually even using the toilet may be affected as dementia patients gradually forget daily routines and lose their abilities to perform such activities.
Caregivers play a vital role in helping those with dementia make these daily activities easier. Proper assistance helps prolong the dementia patients’ independence and allows them to feel productive.
You can help a patient with elderly dementia manage ADL with these tips.
