Question description

Age Related Changes:

Normal aging, or senescence, refers to the gradual, time-related biological progression during which degenerative processes overtake regenerative processes. These changes begin as early as the 40s and proceed gradually. People begin to wear glasses, express a bit of difficulty hearing, and report that weight loss is not as easy as it once was. When it comes to vision, changes include a decrease in the size of the pupil, as well as its responsiveness to light. Thus, a person requires more light and non-glare surfaces to see well. The ability to see nearby objects, as well as to focus at various distances typically starts to become impaired beginning the 4th decade of life.

Tasks:

Find a pair of old glasses or goggles. Smear Vaseline on the lenses. Take about 10 to 15 minutes and stroll through your home. Do not change the normal layout of your home or the lighting. Complete normal activities of daily living (ADLs) such as drinking a glass of water, making a sandwich, or doing the dishes. You might even try selecting an outfit to wear to work tomorrow!

  • In a minimum of 200 words describe and discuss your response to this activity. What challenges did you face? Were your surprised at your ability to carry out any of these normal ADLs? Based on your new insight, what changes would you make or suggest to the elderly person with diminished vision who lives alone?
