THE STRENGTH WITHIN



BELLAONLINE Disabilities Newsletter

So ďHandymanĒ cleaned out part of the garage and sold some of our junk at a flea market. I love spring cleaning! Now to just get the rest out so we can actually use the garage for cars.

This week I posted two articles. One is an introduction to my new series on Activities of Daily Living. Iím pretty excited to have a chance to explore different equipment and methods for doing everyday care and, hopefully, encouraging someone who is struggling to master self-care skills. The second is an article about disabilities we are not often aware of.

------------------------------------------
THE IMPORTANCE OF ADLs
Activities of Daily Living (ADL) are basic life skills that we learn to take care of ourselves every day. Most of us take them for granted and donít understand the importance of our ability to do them.

WHAT WE DONíT SEE
Most disabilities, about 80%, fall into a category commonly called Invisible Disabilities. They are not easily seen or recognized, are usually misunderstood and often disregarded.
