There is a dramatic rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases within the aging population today. Corresponding with this rise is the increased demand on families to be directly engaged in chronic disease management for the elderly in their family. Seniors today have a unique set of needs and expectations that is different than in previous generations. These facts combined means that when dealing with elder care services, a specialized approach to chronic disease management will most likely be a regular part of a caretaker’s responsibility.
What Are Chronic Diseases?
Chronic diseases are persistent medical conditions that can result in lifelong disabilities and impaired quality of life. This can include but is not confined to: Diabetes, Arthritis, Obesity, Heart Disease, Cancer and Respiratory Diseases. Injury from falls or accidents can also result in a chronic medical condition. The most common of the chronic diseases is arthritis impacting as much as 1 in 5 seniors today.
Chronic disease and the increasing need for chronic disease management will predictably rise when the aging population is expected to double in the next thirty years.
