The Five Senses

The Five Senses (now available on Amazon.com) is the fourth book in our award-wining senior wellness series and provides information, insights and practical advice to help older adults cope with these changes in sensory awareness.

Our senses – sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing – are our primary mechanisms for interacting with the world around us. As we age, our senses will gradually decline and these sensory deficits can fundamentally change how we interact with our environment. Managing this decline is a crucial component of happy and healthy aging. The Five Senses provides a detailed overview of the changes we experience in our senses as we age and offers practical guidance on managing this evolution for improved quality of life. Armed with this knowledge, older adults can maintain independence and live comfortably in their own homes as they age.
