Question and answer
Q: Analyse how a range of factors can impact on individuals with sensory loss
A: Sensory impairment is one of the most common chronic conditions of later life; visual impairment affects between 9% and 18% of older adults and hearing loss affects 24% to 33% (Campbell, Crews, Moriarty, Zack, & Blackman, 1999; Crews & Campbell, [ 2004). Much less attention has been paid to concurrent losses in vision and hearing, or dual sensory loss. Between 5% and 9% of older adults are
estimated to have dual sensory loss (Campbell et al.; Crews & Campbell; Raina, Wong, Dukeshire, Chambers, & Lindsay, 2000). Dual sensory impairment may have a greater impact on functional ability than a single impairment, and it may exacerbate problems resulting from even mild sensory loss by interfering with compensation using the other sense (Glass, 2000). For example, individuals who are visually impaired often use hearing to compensate (Wahl, Oswald, & Zimprich, 1999). In this article, our purpose is to examine the prevalence of dual sensory impairment and its effects on functional ability by using the framework of everyday competence. .............. ]
