Why is this important?

People with an independent living difficulty encounter challenges performing instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) due to a physical, mental, or emotional condition. Examples of IADLs include grocery shopping or visiting a doctor's office alone. Without assistance, people with an independent living difficulty may not be able to successfully perform daily activities and can experience a decline in quality of life.
