This includes eating, personal hygiene, dressing, toileting and continence, moving around, housekeeping, taking medication, and other errands the elder needs to do. Sometimes elders are unable to perform these simple tasks in their daily lives, so they require assistance from in home care people to continue living life as they want. The level of in home care required varies from person to person. Some are entirely dependent on their caretaker while other just need a little help with these ADLs. It all depends and the Rockville in comfort home care agency works to help people with their ADLs.
