We created an assessment tool that has about 300 different items. We tested this tool in people who have some loss of their vision and their hearing. Two different assessors completed the tool with the same person. The assessment seems to work well for most questions. However, for questions about a person's mood, level of pain, and social activities, it did not work as well. This tool is useful in sorting out the needs of people with vision and hearing loss.
