Health Conditions, Activity Limitations, and Participation Restrictions Among Older People with Visual Impairments
Abstract: Data from the Second Supplement on Aging (1994) were analyzed to evaluate the presence of selected medical conditions, performance of basic and instrumental activities of daily living, and participation in life situations in two groups of visually impaired elders (persons aged 70–74 and persons aged 85 years or older) and two other groups of elders in the same age groups who are not visually impaired. Results indicated that, for both age groups, visual impairment is a significant risk factor for additional medical conditions, activity limitations, and participation restrictions.
