The aging of baby boomers
means that within just a couple decades, older people are projected to
outnumber children for the first time in U.S. history, according to the U.S.
Census Bureau. By 2034, there will be 77.0 million people 65 years and older.
Many will have chronic health conditions such as low vision. Helping our aging
population learn self-management strategies will help promote improved health
and ability to age in place. This lecture will guide those providing services
to older adults with vision loss in assessment and teaching of self-management.
- Participants will identify critical areas of self-management.
- Participants will identify assessment tools and adaptive strategies to facilitate self-management.
- Participants will identify ways to promote health literacy and healthy behaviors.
