    The amount of time that informal supports are able to help with a task. 
  9. How is informal support defined?

  10. How is assistance available calculated?
    Number of times task occurred divided by number of times informal (non-ADSA) assistance is available to assist client with task.

    • e.g.
    • 21 meals during past 7 days
    • Informal help everyday for breakfast (7 times)

    7/21 = .33, so category equals 1/4 to 1/2

    So units could be times per day/week or hours per day, etc.

    Client and paid caregiver both share in the benefit of an IADL task being performed or two or more client's in a multi-client household benefit from the same IADL task(s) being performed.
