explain where additional information and support can be sourced in relation to sensory loss
Weegy: I seek additional advice and support in relation to sesory loss in a hospital because dotors can tell me what to do and how to cure my sickness. User: describe to whom and how concerns about sight and or hearing loss can be reported Weegy: Hearing and vision problems are not manifest disabilities, and both can lead to misdiagnosis or misunderstanding. [ For example, an older person with vision problems may appear timid, hesitant, or confused, especially when confronted with a new situation.3 Similarly, older people with hearing loss may miss the nuances of conversation and appear confused, creating unjustified impatience on the part of those with whom they are speaking.4 These experiences may lead to isolation, disappointment, and frustration.5 When decrements in vision and hearing exceed normal age-related changes that are due to eye pathology, they may begin to compromise an older person’s ability to carry out routine activities that define social roles and quality of life.6 Either hearing or vision loss can affect the most common and simple tasks. Sensory decline may compromise one’s ability to hear whispered conversation or side remarks, write notes, read the newspaper, and recognize facial expressions. ] (More)
