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.
The most common issues and diseases of elderly people:
- Cardiovascular diseases,
- High blood pressure,
- Malignant tumours,
- COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease),
- Arthritis, osteoporosis,
- Blurred vision,
- Hearing impairment,
The mission of the Anti-Aging field is to encourage society to be proactive before reaching old age. However elderly patients and their relatives mostly seek help of a gerontologist in cases of already acute issues. The specialists of the Anti-Aging Institute provide preventive health-plans as well as the measures for the existing geriatric issues.
