Seven in ten Europeans over the age of 65 live with sight or hearing problems and over two-thirds live with depression or dementia. When combined together, the cumulative impact of such dual or triple impairments is far greater than that of the individual conditions alone. The scale of combined sensory and cognitive problems is substantial but, as yet, poorly understood.

SENSE-Cog aims to investigate this combined impact on patients, and to develop new tools and at-home support that could improve quality of life and help optimise health and social care budgets and resource allocation across Europe.
