Assisting with ADLs (part 2)

Assisting with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) is a fundamental aspect of a PCA's role in providing essential care to patients in need. ADLs are everyday tasks that individuals typically perform independently, such as personal hygiene, dressing, eating, toileting, and mobility. PCAs are responsible for assisting patients in performing these tasks to maintain their independence, dignity, and overall well-being. This course focuses on the techniques and best practices in assisting patients with ADLs while ensuring the patient's safety and comfort.
