Overview:As we age, we can expect changes to occur in the systems that make up the human body. Although exactly what kinds of changes will take place and when vary greatly with each individual, aging is inescapable - a part of the continuum of life. While some changes are easy to accept, we may find other changes disturbing. Especially when we see them in our loved ones.
Learning about normal age-related changes will both help alleviate anxiety you may have and more importantly, help you provide better care for your loved one by being able to understand and communicate better with them and their healthcare team.
