On patient notes, do not waste time with all the negative components of ADL and IADL. Typically, you
would go like this in a pt who has difficulty traveling and managing finances:
..
ADL - normal
IADL- normal except difficulty managing finances and travel.
Hope this mnemonic (from OSCE) helps:
ADL: DEATH
Dressing
Eating
Ambulation
Toileting
Hygeine(bath)

IADL: SHAFT
Shopping
Housekeeping
Accounts
Fone, Finances
Traveling
