We are living longer than ever. With this newfound longevity comes an increasing need to understand the aging process. Most of us are born with five ways of experiencing the world around us - hearing, vision, touch, smell and taste. As we age we are likely to experience sensory deficits, including vision impairment, loss of hearing and a reduced sense of taste. These impairments can fundamentally change how we interact with our environment, posing safety issues such as increased fall risk, and emotional issues such as anxiety, depression and isolation. The Five Senses provides information, insights and practical tips to help older adults and their loved ones manage this transition. Armed with this knowledge, older adults can retain independence and live comfortably in their own homes.
