Activities of Daily Living

Part 1: Day to Day Activities

Here we have a conversation with Occupational Therapist, Sylvia Koreen.  Sylvia helps us to understand how dementia can affect the ability of a person to do day to day activities. She shares ideas to adapt to changing abilities for daily activities like bathing, dressing, mealtime, bathroom routines and leisure time.

For reflection....

After you watch the video, take a few minutes to reflect on the following questions.  Feel free to make some notes.

  • What stood out for you as important messages?
  • What will you continue to do in your role as a care partner? What will you stop or do differently?
