Description of Impact of a Vision Intervention on the Functional Status of Nursing Home Residents


This study examined the outcomes associated with an intervention for residents of two nursing homes who had low vision and cognitive impairments that included diagnosis, optical correction, ensuring that the participants wore their eyeglasses, and staff training in recognizing vision problems. It found that a significantly decreased decline in function was associated with the provision of both eyeglasses and Croakies to the residents and staff training to recognize vision problems and provide reinforcement techniques, rather than only the provision of eyeglasses and Croakies.
