Memory Loss, Dementia, and Stroke: Implications for Rehabilitation of Older Adults with Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Warren, Mary
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v102 n10 p611-615 Oct 2008
Older adults with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) are not immune to the other diseases of aging. Although AMD is the leading cause of low vision in older Americans, stroke is the leading cause of disability, and dementias affect another 2.5 million older Americans. Each condition alone can significantly impair a person's ability to participate fully in daily life, and these conditions often occur together. This article describes impairment from memory loss, dementia, and stroke to provide insights into how these conditions may affect the visual rehabilitation of clients with AMD.
