Aging is a natural part of life that presents unique challenges to overall health and well-being. These challenges include the high prevalence of recurring diseases and other physical disabilities.
With advanced age, there are also nutritional requirements, psycho-emotional concerns and other medical essentials that need to be addressed. Add to that are the availability or adequacy issues surrounding these healthcare matters, which cast a decisive influence on the quality of life in older adults.
A multifaceted approach to healthcare is required to prevent or manage a wide gamut of health issues in the elderly.
Did you know there will be 70 million people aged 65 and above in the U.S. by the year 2030? This figure is twice the number of elderly adults in 1998. In addition, the average age of older adults has increased to 85 from 65.
Research also revealed that four out of five people aged 65 and above are diagnosed with at least one chronic disease. Being a diverse age group with unique medical requirements, older adults need a varied approach to healthcare that is focused on meeting their primary needs.
