ADLs stands for Activities of Daily Living. These are a set of basic self-care tasks that individuals typically perform on a daily basis in order to take care of themselves and maintain their independence. ADLs are often used as a measure of a person's functional abilities, particularly in healthcare and caregiving settings.
ADLs are fundamental for independent living, and their assessment helps healthcare professionals determine an individual's level of functional ability and identify areas where assistance or intervention may be required.
