INSTRUMENTAL ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING
Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL) are activities related to independent living but are not always required on a daily basis. IADLs include preparing meals, managing money, shopping for personal items or groceries, performing housework, doing laundry, or using a cell phone.
The need to have assistance with IADLs is usually the first sign a client could benefit from outside help, but it is less noticeable than the need for assistance with ADLs.
Texas Angels can assist clients with their Instrumental Activities of Daily Living including:
Other Instrumental Activities of Daily Living are best assisted or managed by family, although in some cases we may be able to help, they include:
The three levels of assistance Texas Angels assigns to a client's ADLs and IADLs are Hands-On Assistance, Stand-By Assistance and Independent. Note that some institutions use a system of five or six categories which breaks down Hands-On Assistance into additional levels.
