This is the second video in a series of articles and accompanying videos, part of the Professional Partners Supporting Diverse Family Caregivers Across Settings project funded by the Jacob and Valeria Langeloth Foundation through the AARP Foundation. Nearly one-third of American households have been involved in providing assistance to an older adult family member, often without the skills they need because of a variety of barriers to learning. This video (which has an accompanying article in the November 2011 issue) explores these barriers and discusses how nurses can use “teachable moments” and “teach back” to promote learning among caregivers.
As we age, so do our eyes. The resulting changes can put older adults at risk for injury; limit participation in favorite activities; cause increased sensitivity to light and glare; and ultimately limit independence. However, in many older adults with “low vision” the problems are not so obvious to others—until we take a closer look and better understand the nature and extent of the problem.
However, there are many simple interventions and enhanced technologies available to maximize vision and function. This 30-minute program provides viewers with a broad range of tools and strategies to enhance safety and maximize independence, and describes services, tools, and options available for those with vision loss.
