Elderly People and Aging Population background
In the recent decades, the life expectancy steadily increases due to many factors, such as advances in medicine, better nutrition and much emphasis on healthy lifestyles. Consequently, the number of the elderly people and people aged over 60 is rapidly growing. Albeit, the risk of illnesses and disabilities increases with age, elderly care is now very advanced and most elderly people can enjoy active and satisfying seniority years.
Risks of poor health can be minimized through healthy and active lifestyle and by application of various preventive measures that reduce the risks of painful injuries and debilitating illnesses. Good elderly care facilities and well qualified elderly care professionals ensure quality elderly care can be delivered. Poor health does not any longer have to be perceived as an inevitable consequence of aging. Longer life expectancy and overall better health mean that many people are now able to live active and healthy lives for many years after retirement. Many elderly people choose to live independently in their own homes. Modern elderly care is about keeping elderly people independent as well as physically and socially active for life with daily living help provided, when it is required. Many elderly people receive care at home.
