What does ADL means? Well, it stands for activities of daily living.  Not too many people know that ADL is a term used in healthcare to refer to daily self care activities within an individual’s place of residence.  There are many routine activities that people tend do every day without needing assistance.  Keep in mind that there are six basic ADLs: eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, walking and continence.  It is important to know that an individual’s ability to perform ADLs is important for determining what type of long-term care and coverage the individual needs.
