Elderly Person's Disorders

Elderly person's disorders are physical, emotional. and mental problems that come naturally with advancing age. Some of these are arthritis, kidney problems, dementia, heart problems, etc. These are caused by many different variables - natural wear and tear on the body, genetics, the cumulative effects of bad habits (alcohol, drugs, poor eating habits, lack of exercise, etc), and the breakdown of nerve synapses in the brain just to name a few. Many of these conditions can be halted or slowed through medication, healthy eating, exercise (both physical and mental!), and other forms of treatment.
