What does sensory deprivation mean in this question?

  1. 0
    The LPN/LVN contributes to the planning of care for an elderly client recently admitted for acute pulmonary edema. Which of the following assessments is MOST important to prevent the client from experiencing sensory deprivation?

    Can someone please explain to me what is it. I searched google and found too many definitions. I am confused about it.

    It means like your senses are being deprived I'm horrible at explaining things ill try to do my best like as in someone is blindfolded or having ear plugs in things like that but since its an nclex question I know the answer won't be as straight forward as that so what are the answer choices?

    1. Find out about the client's hobbies.
    2. Identify significant support system.
    3. Ask about the availability of a radio for the client's room.
    4. Assess if the client supports the family financially.

    Says the answer is 2:

    (2.) CORRECT—assessing the family support system is critical in identifying appropriate support persons for a client who is isolated while hospitalized; part of the LPN/LVN's role is regular contact with client and to enhance sensory stimulation
