Dressing–clothing adjustment, braces and/or attachments necessary for mounting and removal.
Eat and prepare food– the ability to cook food and to assist eating.

Bathroom – using a shower or bath, toilet and maintaining personal hygiene.
There are other considerable activities including money management, medication management, light housework and the shopping of food and necessities. These tasks are needed for independence and quality of life.
