Eye health is so important for quality of life in aged care residents. Discover how you can encourage and help manage good eye health in your loved one.
Managing Eye Health
At Healthcare 2 You, part of the journey we undertake to deliver Allied Healthcare Services to the Golden Oldies of our community involves education, in particular about vision and managing eye health.
It is almost universal for visual problems to come with age and it is common for aged care residents to struggle with their eyesight.
For an outsider, it can be difficult to imagine how someone with visual problems sees the world. However, having some knowledge and understanding is important for family members who wish to help manage your Loved One’s eye health.
See the world through their eyes
The video below provides good insights (no pun intended) into the world, as viewed by elderly people who have a range of eye diseases. While the clip is intended for carers, it can be very informative if you have a family member living in aged care.
Provided by the Macular Disease Foundation, this video should help you understand what life is like for those struggling with age-related vision changes.
