The aim of this research was to determine whether there are differences in ability and performance of instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) among groups of older adults with no multiple chronic conditions (MCC), low MCC, or multisystem morbidity (MM). We found that older adults with MM had more IADL impairment in both ability and performance than those with low or no MCC. Our findings also suggest that older adults with MM are able to do more than they actually do.
