Caregivers For The Elderly

There are many choices today when seeking caregivers for the elderly in need.  And need would be determined if a senior requires assistance with one or more of the Activities of Daily Living.  Commonly known as ADL’s, these are everyday functions and activities that individuals usually do without help. ADL functions include bathing/showering, continence (controlling the urge of going to go the bathroom), dressing, eating, toileting, and transferring (getting in or out of bed or chair).
