Gerontologist

During the 20th century life expectancy of a person has almost doubled. We live longer and therefore experience more age-related health issues. The goal of the Anti-Aging Institute is not only to delay ageing, but also to help live a dignified life throughout senior years.

Gerontology is a multidisciplinary field related to the physical, mental and social aspects of ageing.

As people age, they face various challenges – health issues, changes in their physical and mental abilities, changes regarding social role in society.

The main task of a gerontologist is to take care of the health and quality of life of an elderly patient, considering all age-related changes, not only separate diseases and symptoms.
