    All of the above options encourage independence with activities of daily living. Adequate lighting helps individuals see and navigate their surroundings, reducing the risk of accidents and promoting independence.

Praising the resident boosts their self-confidence and motivation, encouraging them to perform tasks independently. Therefore, all of these factors contribute to promoting independence in activities of daily living.

These activities include tasks such as bathing, dressing, eating, toileting, transferring (e.g. getting in and out of bed), and continence. ADLs are often used as a measure of an individual's functional status and can be important indicators of their overall health and ability to live independently.

    Explanation
    A resident who needs the grooming items set out and partial performance of the task by the caregiver is considered "Stand by assist". This means that the resident requires some assistance and supervision from the caregiver, but is able to perform most of the task independently. The caregiver is there to provide support and ensure the resident's safety, but does not need to actively participate in the task.

    Explanation
    When assisting a resident to transfer, it is important to bend at the knees. This is because bending at the knees helps to maintain a stable and balanced position, reducing the risk of strain or injury to the caregiver's back. By bending at the knees, the caregiver can use the strength of their leg muscles to support the weight of the resident, making the transfer safer and more comfortable for both parties involved.

    Explanation
    The water for the shower should be checked by the caregiver first to ensure that it is at a safe temperature. After checking the water, the caregiver should then point it away from the resident, allowing him to feel it with his hand to ensure that it is comfortable for him. This process ensures that the water is safe and suitable for the resident's needs.

      Dry

    • B.

      Wet

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    When assisting a resident to shave with an electric razor, it is important for the face to be dry. This is because electric razors are designed to be used on dry skin. Wetting the face before using an electric razor can cause the razor to malfunction or result in an ineffective shave. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that the face is dry before using an electric razor for shaving.

    When assisting the resident to shave with a safety razor, the face should be:

    • A.

      Dry

    • B.

      Wet

    Correct Answer
    B. Wet
    Explanation
    When assisting a resident to shave with a safety razor, the face should be wet. Wetting the face helps to soften the facial hair and open up the pores, making it easier to shave and reducing the risk of skin irritation or cuts. Additionally, wetting the face helps to create a smooth surface for the razor to glide across, resulting in a closer and more comfortable shave.

      Put the sleeve on the strong side first

    • B.

      Put the sleeve on the weak side first

    Correct Answer
    B. Put the sleeve on the weak side first
    Explanation
    When dressing a resident with a weakened arm due to stroke, it is important to put the sleeve on the weak side first. This allows the resident to use their stronger arm to assist in dressing the weaker arm. By putting the sleeve on the weak side first, it ensures that the resident is able to fully dress themselves using their stronger arm for support and stability.

    Correct Answer
    A. Take off the strong side first
    Explanation
    When undressing a resident with a weakened arm due to stroke, it is recommended to take off the strong side first. This is because the strong arm can provide support and stability while removing clothing from the weak side. By removing the clothing from the strong side first, it ensures that the resident maintains balance and reduces the risk of injury or discomfort.

    Correct Answer
    B. Wipe from the front to the back
    Explanation
    When cleaning the resident's genital area, it is important to wipe from the front to the back. This is because wiping from the back to the front can introduce bacteria from the anal area to the urinary tract, which can lead to urinary tract infections. Wiping from the front to the back helps to prevent the spread of bacteria and maintain proper hygiene.
