    Does anyone have a good diagnosis for the following condition:

    Difficulty with ADL's
    General decline in ADL's

    I know this is pretty broad and I don't need something as a primary diagnosis just a supporting one to give a clear picture of the patient's condition.

    Thanks much!!

    I was looking at the debility codes, 799.3 Debility, unspecified and 797 Senility which includes frailty and old age and I am not digging them.

    What about decreased functional activity, 780.99 Other general symptoms?

    That is what I came up with as well. I was hoping that there was something more specific but for now I will use these that you described.
