Assistance In Daily Living

Gaining knowledge and experience in general life skills, such as maintaining a clean and tidy home, practising good personal hygiene, and adopting healthy eating habits, can be valuable in fostering independence and a sense of responsibility in one’s life.

What are daily living skills?

Daily living skills refer to the basic skills and abilities required to manage one’s daily life independently. These skills are essential for individuals to take care of themselves and their personal needs, navigate their environment, and participate fully in their community.

Examples of daily living skills include personal hygiene, grooming, dressing, preparing meals, shopping, managing finances, using transportation, cleaning and maintaining a home, and basic communication skills. These skills are often learned during childhood and adolescence, but they can also be taught or relearned later in life.

Daily living skills are important for individuals of all ages and abilities. For people with disabilities or special needs, these skills are particularly important for achieving greater independence, self-sufficiency, and improved quality of life. By mastering daily living skills, individuals can take a more active role in their own lives and engage more fully in their communities.
