The aging process affects every aspect of our lives: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Because of that, age- related issues often make it more difficult to diagnose health concerns for a variety of reasons.   That’s why it’s important to work with health care professionals who have expertise in the affects of aging and treatment of elderly individuals with health problems. When care is coordinated and carefully managed with continual collaboration between doctors, nurses, therapists and other care givers, people can expect to live healthier and happier longer.
