Senior Health & Aging Information

  • Aging is the process of becoming older. Aging is an important part of all human societies reflecting the biological changes that occur, but also reflecting cultural and societal conventions.There is often considerable social pressure in many societies to sustain denial of the aging process. Considerable energy, money and tim is expended to hide signs of aging, especially among women. This may involve dyeing hair, elaborate make-up, or even cosmetic surgery. Among the young however there is often a desire to seem older to gain more responsibility and respect...
  • The issues of an aging population in which the average age of a society is increasing is an important issue in many nations of the world. The societal effects of age are great. Young people tend to commit most crimes, they are more likely to push for political and social change, to develop and adopt new technologies, and to need education.

    Older people have different requirements from society and government as opposed to young people, and frequently differing values as well. Older people are also far more likely to vote, and in many countries the young are forbidden from voting, and thus the aged have comparatively more political influence.
