This information sheet presents some of the interim findings of the life opportunities survey regarding the assistance received with everyday activities and the care provided by adults. The survey found that under a fifth of all adults required assistance with at least one everyday activity. Adults with impairments who required assistance completing everyday activities were more likely to receive assistance from a family member and a quarter of adults with impairments received assistance from a friend or neighbour. When people with impairments who receive assistance with daily activities were asked how frequently they receive this care, the most common response was always, reported by over half of these respondents.
