Unlike problems in vision and hearing, age-related losses to smell and taste have only recently gained attention. Like declines in the other senses, losing the ability to smell different odors and scents and to taste food can lead to serious quality-of-life and safety issues.
When the sense of smell or taste diminishes, the world becomes a different place. Adults who have trouble smelling and tasting often have poor appetites, which can lead to weight loss, malnutrition and weakened immune systems. Losing the ability to enjoy food can also contribute to emotional problems such as anxiety and depression.
Barbara Bein shares tips on how to cover smell and taste disorders in older adults.
