BFS webinar: Age-related disability
April 24, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Getting online presents a lot of challenges for older people with disabilities. They can feel excluded from all the benefits that the Internet can offer. Disability presents itself in many different forms and degrees of severity.
In this webinar, presenter Judy Buckingham from ACE DisAbility explored the most common forms of age-related disability. She discussed general aspects of disability including the:
- impact of vision and/or hearing loss
- impact of memory loss and dementia
- impact of loss of mobility
- the effects of medication
- importance of social inclusion.
Working with people with disability can be very rewarding, great fun and stimulating but it can also be hard work, so you need to know where you can find help if you need it.
ACE DisAbility promotes disability awareness and provides advice, support and training in the Adult and Community Education sector.
