Activities of daily living, commonly abbreviated ADLs, are the basic life skills learned during childhood. Persons with Alzheimer’s disease, however, will slowly forget or unlearn how to complete these tasks as cognitive impairment progresses. Because of this decline in ability, individuals in the middle to late stages of Alzheimer’s disease will require assistance from you for completion of these tasks. This course will help you better understand how to assist persons with Alzheimer’s disease with ADL completion. In this course, you will learn the various levels of functional ability in persons with Alzheimer’s disease as well as the guidelines you must follow when providing care.
