A framework understanding the most appropriate stage to intervene and which interventions are most effective.
The ADL LifeCurve™ is a tool developed by ADL Research and Newcastle University's Institute for Ageing which may be used to map age related functional decline. Watch Professor Peter Gore's presentation at the AILIP Launch:
Development of the ADL LifeCurve™
Research and development of the Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL) are important in understanding the tasks, constraints and solutions to help older adults live better for longer, which is an integral part of ADL Research.
To push the boundaries further in our understanding of functional difficulties in older adults we searched for answers that would better aid in our understanding, but also facilitate a better understand of activities, services and products to help older adults. This was derived from research carried out in Newcastle University which identified a hierarchical order to the loss of function.
