Description of Cognitive Ability as a Resource for Everyday Functioning Among Older Adults Who Are Visually Impaired



Abstract: This article reports on a study that investigated the role of cognitive resources in the everyday functioning of 121 older adults who were visually impaired and 150 sighted older adults, with a mean age of 82 years. Cognitive performance and everyday functioning were most strongly related in the group who were visually impaired. The authors conclude that cognitive training enhances independent living skills.
