As seniors age, their cognitive skills, mental acuity and motor skills diminish to a point where routine Activities of Daily Living (ADLs); eating, bathing, selecting proper attire, dressing, toileting, transferring (walking) and maintaining continence become too difficult to manage. Other areas that may be affected by diminished skills are Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IDLs); managing finances, transportation, shopping & errands, preparing meals, using communication devices, managing medication and housekeeping.
Often times, this process of diminishing skills occurs gradually over time, making it difficult for a senior to recognize their quality of life has lessened. If they feel the need for assistance, they seldom ask for help. Primarily because they want to retain their independence and do not want to burden family. They may also fear leaving the comfort of their home in lieu of a nursing home or assisted living facility.
Similarly, those with developmental disabilities may experience the same diminished skills.
Adults with developmental disabilities have complex health issues, many of them differing from those of the general population. Good primary care identifies the particular health issues faced by adults with developmental disabilities to improve their quality of life and to prevent suffering.
