My contention that ageing IS a disability
http://www.ilusa.com/News/Ageing-as-Disability.htm brings me to some
discussion about "experts on cognitive" we seek.
I find that in my own case (born 1926) the decrements in sensory acuity
are less aggravating than the various "senior moment" type memory lapses
and other afflictions usually regarded as "cognitive disorders".
In particular when I read documents replete with abbreviations/acronyms
I NEED some way to get an immediate translation and even better a
further link to something like wikipedia. In the case of my main
physical affliction if I encounter "chf" I would on first "click" get
"congestive heart failure" with a second click yielding
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Congestive_heart_failure - this is the sort
of thing we should seek if we are to serve the "cognitive" area.
