Daily Living Aids Explained

Daily Living Aids are specialised products which are designed to help people living with reduced mobility to perform their ADL and everyday tasks.

Activities Of Daily Living (ADL) are the normal routine things we all do as part of our daily lives, things such as:

  • Getting in and out of bed
  • Washing
  • Putting on our clothes
  • Cooking
  • Drinking
  • Eating
  • Cleaning the house

Daily living aids are tools that can help anyone who is having difficulty with their normal day to day activities. Activities Of Daily Living are things that we tend to learn when we are very young, they become part of our routine and are often performed automatically without any conscious thought needed. Unfortunately there can be a change in our situation that makes these once easy to complete tasks very difficult; where once getting out of bed and going to make breakfast was an easy chore, it is now a difficult process; this is where daily living aids can be of use.

Here is an example of some daily living aids and the conditions they are most suited to helping:
