Activities of daily living (ADL) are also called self-help or self-care activities. These activities can include everyday tasks such as dressing, self-feeding, bathing, laundry, and / or meal preparation. Sometimes adaptive equipment is needed to assist with these tasks, which can include items such as a reacher, long-handled sponge, buttonholer, rocker knife, and / or built-up spoon.
An occupational therapist (OC) will work with the client to address these skills and work to improve as needed.
One reason why you should choose Cincinnati Children's Divisions of Occupational and Physical Therapy and Therapeutic Recreation -- we have access to ADL suites at multiple locations across our hospital campuses.
ADL suites are furnished rooms set up to simulate a home, and may include a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and / or living area. Adaptive equipment is available to test and try out before purchasing.
Individuals who can benefit from ADL services include:
ADL training is available at all Cincinnati Children's locations. ADL suites are located at our Main (Burnet) Campus, and the Cincinnati Children's Drake neighborhood location.
Buttoning a shirt is one example of a daily activity that occupational therapists can work on with patients if needed.
We have a reputation for using the latest therapeutic approaches to achieve the best possible outcomes for our patients. Our specialized programs range from aquatic therapy to vestibular rehabilitation.
