Age-associated structural changes in ears, eyes, and nervous system are compared with normal functioning. Environmental factors are identified that can be manipulated to minimize these alterations. Various approaches for dealing with the elderly having visual and auditory limitations are presented but assessment by the nurse is not detailed adequately. This program is recommended as introductory nursing instruction for working with the elderly.
