Activities of daily living (ADL's) is a term encompassing dressing, bathing, meal preparation, housekeeping, etc. Our monthly service fee includes assistance with these services. Before a resident moves into Felton Manor, our admissions director will meet with the resident and/or his/her family to develop a written care plan for the resident outlining specific "activities of daily living (ADL's)" the resident requires.
