Making Sense of Sensory Losses as We Age

Short description:

The process of aging begins at birth and continues throughout life. Change is an inevitable part of the aging process. Sensation is the physical and mental process that allows us to receive information from our surrounding environment through the ears, skin, tongue, nostrils, eyes and other specialized sense organs. Key sensing processes include vision, hearing, touch, taste and smell.
