Analyse how a range of factors can impact on individuals with sensory loss
Weegy: ensory changes do not occur at the same age for each person, nor do all changes occur for everyone or to the same degree. An awareness of different sensory changes and their effects can be helpful. [ Studies have shown changes accelerate at these approximate age ranges: Vision -- mid-50s Hearing -- mid-40s Touch -- mid-50s Taste -- mid-60s Smell -- mid-70s Let's make sense of the aging process by exploring the senses and ways we can make a difference. Sensory loss seems to be an almost inevitable companion to growing old. Does that mean older adults who are losing one or more of their senses are simply out of luck? Not at all. Cures may not be available for the major causes of age-related sensory loss, but armed with the right knowledge about which age-related sensory losses are normal and which are not, we can better understand what to do about them. Understanding sensory loss can help individuals adapt and accept these natural changes. Equally important is not accepting a change as a normal part of aging without first understanding the loss. A variety of resources that can help minimize the impact of sensory losses as we age often are available. Alteration of the environment to compensate for age-related sensory losses is necessary for many older adults to maintain their independent living. Thorough knowledge of the changes in vision, taste, smell, touch and hearing that accompany the aging process is essential to assessing environmental alteration. Most damage to senses is caused by environmental factors, much of which becomes apparent as people enter their 70s. Although genetics is known to influence longevity and optimal aging, research suggests that good lifestyle choices, including regular exercise, diet and nutrition, have a significant impact on how well individuals age. The challenges of life do not become easier as one ages. Fears, physical difficulties and various losses occur. They include sensory losses in the areas ... (More)

Analyse how societal attitudes and beliefs impact on individuals with sensory loss
Weegy: The capacity to exercise control over the nature and quality of one's life is the essence of humanness. Human agency is characterized by a number of core features that operate through phenomenal and functional consciousness. [ These include the temporal extension of agency through intentionality and forethought, self-regulation by self-reactive influence, and self-reflectiveness about one's capabilities, quality of functioning, and the meaning and purpose of one's life pursuits. Personal agency operates within a broad network of sociostructural influences. In these agentic transactions, people are producers as well as products of social systems. Social cognitive theory distinguishes among three modes of agency: direct personal agency, proxy agency that relies on others to act on one's behest to secure desired outcomes, and collective agency exercised through socially coordinative and interdependent effort. Growing transnational embeddedness and interdependence are placing a premium on collective efficacy to exercise control over personal destinies and national life. ] User: Explore how a range of factors, societal attitudes and beliefs impact on service provision (More)
