Senior health

Getting older can be a source of worry for both the individuals and their carers or family. Some conditions are found more often as we age, such as some cancers. Also as we age we tend to have to take more medications. Having accurate information can help manage the worry.

Patient.co.uk‘s doctor-authored leaflets cover a wide range of conditions. They include information on preventing falls and safeguarding vulnerable adults (“What do I do if I think I know someone is being tricked or conned?”) as well as conditions that can be more problematic for the elderly such as flu or urine infections.

One of the most common conditions elderly people worry about having is dementia. There is also information on the different types of dementia, how they are diagnosed and how they are treated.
