Aging adults


The average lifespan of people around the world is increasing. Today, most individuals can presume to survive well into their sixties and even into their seventies. (Huvila et al., 2018) As the world’s population ages, the proportion of older people in the population grows. Physically, aging is instigated by various molecular and cellular harm that constructs up over time. As an outcome, one’s physical and mental aptitudes worsen with time, snowballing their susceptibility to illness and, finally, demise.
