Brief description The burden from hearing and vision impairments, greatest for people with dual sensory impairment (DSI), will rise with population ageing. Targeted rehabilitation and support for DSI may improve health and quality of life. This project will pilot an integrated, collaborative service model for assessment and rehabilitation of DSI in older people. The knowledge gained will inform policy development and optimise use of resources to provide the best possible care for older Australians with DSI.
