AADL clients

Albertans must be assessed by an AADL authorizer. Find out about eligibility, application process, benefits, cost sharing, approved vendors.


Alberta Aids to Daily Living (AADL) is available to any Albertan resident with a long-term disability, chronic illness or terminal illness. To be eligible for funding, you must first be clinically assessed by an AADL-approved health care provider, such as a registered nurse, occupational therapist or physiotherapist, who are also called AADL authorizers. Authorizers determine your health care needs, identify the equipment and supplies required to support you and act as your primary guide through the program.

Once you are authorized for benefit funding, an AADL-approved vendor – the store that provides medical equipment and supplies – will help provide the benefit and collect your cost-share portion for the benefit, if applicable.
