Technically, ADLs refer to the triggers that would indicate that benefits might become payable. The broadest definition would include ambulating (walking), bathing, continence, dressing, eating, transferring to or from a bed or wheel chair, and using toilet facilities. The actual ADL’s that are considered and the number needed to trigger benefits vary from policy to policy.
