It is generally assumed that as we grow older, it’s inevitable that sensory loss or impairment will be a factor in the ageing process. With life expectancy rising and growing numbers of people aged 60+, the increase in people who experience sight and hearing loss also increases. In the older age group of 85+, the challenge is accommodating people with dual sensory loss. Many people with sensory loss usually have problems adjusting and may go on to have emotional issues like depression or anxiety or feel socially isolated, which can affect their mental and physical well-being. However, people who have a positive attitude, may have an improved quality of life while coping with their sensory loss and maintaining their social links.
