Are everyday tasks becoming more difficult?

Man crossing rickety string bridge.When everything you do seems like a challenge maybe it is time to ask for help to make things easy again.

If you are becoming less able to cope with everyday tasks, known professionally as ‘activities of daily living’ (ADLs), and you are having difficulty solving the problem yourself then you could look on reputable websites for guidance such as AgeUK or which are both charities.

If you still have an unresolved issue you could speak with an Occupational Therapist (OT). OTs are not just for working life but have a mission to ‘overcome barriers preventing people from doing the activities (or occupations) that matter to them.’ OTs will be up to date with the latest aids and services that can make life more manageable.

You can ask your local council or doctor for an assessment, but you are likely to find yourself on a waiting list which can be quite substantial and any support will probably be means tested. If you can afford it, go to (website of the OT’s Royal College) and click ‘find an occupational therapist’.
