What are the Life Domains? 

People lead whole lives made up of specific, connected, and integrated life domains that are important to lead a good life. Life domains are the different aspects and experiences of life that we all consider as we age and grow. Life domains help us think about the current realities in our lives while also thinking about what life experiences we want to have. 



Daily Life & Employment 

What a person does as part of everyday life–school, employment, volunteering, communication, routines, life skills. 


Community Living 

Where and how someone lives – housing and living options, community access, transportation, home adaptations and modifications. 


Healthy Living 

Managing and accessing health care and staying well – medical, mental health, behavioral health, developmental, wellness and nutrition. 


Safety & Security 

Staying safe and secure – emergencies, well-being, guardianship options, legal rights and issues. 


Social & Spirituality 

Building friendships and relationships, leisure activities, personal networks, and faith community.

Building valued roles, making choices, setting goals, assuming responsibility and driving how one’s own life is lived.
