Alberta Aids to Daily Living (AADL) assists Albertans with a long-term disability, chronic illness or terminal illness, in maintaining independence in their community. AADL provides funding for basic medical equipment and supplies to meet clinically assessed needs*.
Most AADL benefits have a cost-share amount that is paid by clients. Respiratory benefits do not have a cost-share requirement and seniors do not pay cost-share on prosthetic, orthotic, breast prosthesis, or ocular prosthesis. For all other benefits, clients pay 25% of the cost of program benefits up to a maximum of $500 per family per benefit year Low-income Albertans and people receiving income assistance do not pay the cost-sharing portion.
* Note: An assessment by a health care professional determines the equipment and supplies that an Albertan can receive through the AADL program.
