While we are healthy it is easy for us to take for granted the Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s). However, when you or a loved one is stricken with a degenerative condition such as a stroke, performing these ADL’s becomes impossible without the assistance of another person. This type of care is chronic (full-time) and thus becomes very expensive. Cognitive Impairment, example Alzheimer’s, is a stand-alone trigger of benefits.
