Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Posted on: October 26, 2017

Assisted living: Age related macular degeneration

AMD stands for age related macular degeneration. This is the most severe cause of irreversible vision loss in people over the age of 60 years. The disease occurs at a small area of the central portion of the retina, this area is known as the macula. The retina is the layer of the eye which senses the light and gives rise to the nerve that carries visual information to the brain. The development of the disease occurs as the person ages. This is not always a condition that can cause blinding, however this can lead to significant visual disability. Vision loss is the primary age related condition which limits an older adult’s ability to live alone, or live with only part-time assistance and care. The full time care available in an assisted living community is a natural fit for retired adults with age related macular degeneration.

Our Happy Clients
  • My grandmother lives at the Ventura Townehouse and I feel confident that she is in good hands. They get her to her appointments and provide any aftercare that she may need. Everyone there is friendly and like family. I feel like I’m at home when I go there to visit her and eat with her in the dining room.

  • Recently, I visited my Mom from Chicago. Each day I offered to take us out and about in Ventura. We found ourselves having such an enjoyable time at the Townehouse we didn’t leave. The dining room was so lovey to enjoy with her friends. Patios welcoming and the activities kept us busy. We laughed and had fun all day! Thank you everyone for making me feel at home and making my visit special. It’s always hard to leave my mom. But not as hard when I know she is so happy! Until my next visit!
