Both versions are divided into six areas of occupation: BADL
, IADL, play, leisure, social participation, and education.
1,10,20) As for the dependence on the BADL
, similar results were obtained in researches carried out in Rio Grande do Sul (1) and Joao Pessoa (20) since the findings related to the IADL are divergent of the survey conducted in Goiania, with 14.
On average, LTSS recipients were independent in four of six BADLs
(mean = 4.
On average, MNCD patients had minimal disruption in everyday activities by BADL
scale; however, it was significantly different from controls.
Interviews were conducted in two stages: first, the people with dementia were assessed by health professionals in the outpatient department using the BADL
, IADL, and CDR; subsequently, the family caregivers rated the frequency of DBD of their relative with dementia during the previous week and self-reported their own efficacy level in DBD management.
For example, Lindrooth, Hoerger, and Norton (2000) found that persons with more limitations in BADLs
reported a higher nursing home risk perception, meaning persons who were more disabled thought they had a higher likelihood of moving to a nursing home within 5 years, which is plausible.
A low score on the MMSE correlated strongly with low scores on the BADL
and the IADL and was another independent predictor of poor functional status.
Activities that compose functional status may be divided into three groups: BADL
, IADL, and advanced activities of daily living (AADL).
Participants who reported that they needed help with at least one of the following activities: feeding oneself, getting in and out of bed, using the lavatory, dressing and undressing, washing and bathing oneself and walking between rooms were classified as disabled in BADL
The MMD covers six of the eight areas of occupation defined by the OTPF, namely, activities of daily living (covered by the BADL
dimension of the MMD); instrumental activities of daily living and education (covered by the IADL dimension of the MMD); and play, leisure, and social participation (covered by the PLAY dimension of the MMD).
14] The watershed between IADL and BADL
usually occurs at an MMSE of 16 out of 30,  while urinary incontinence occurs at a score of around 8.
A multi-dimensional questionnaire administered at the subject's home was used to collect information on demographics, presence of several common chronic diseases and BADL
