The Coronavirus infects people of all ages. However, evidence to date that suggests they are two groups of people are at higher risk of getting severe COVID-19 disease. Elderly people are at higher risk of COVID-19 infection due to their lower immunity and body reserves, as well as multiple associated co-morbidities like diabetes, hypertension, chronic kidney disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Critical illness means that the person with COVID-19 may require hospitalization, intensive care, or a ventilator to help them breathe, or they may even die. Risk for severe illness increases with age. As you get aged, your risk for severe illness from COVID-19 increases. For example, people in their 50s are at more risk for severe illness than people in their 40s. Similarly, people in their 60s or 70s are, in general, at greater risk for severe illness than people in their 50s. The highest risk for severe illness from COVID-19 is among those aged 85 or older.

As you get elderly, your body’s internal processes from skin cell turnover to workout betterment slow down and take longer to complete or recharge. This leaves room for signs of aging, such as wrinkles to occur. These changes may be surprising if they happen speedy than expected, hence the term “premature” aging. It’s impossible to avoid these changes completely, but there are ways to reduce the signs of aging in your body especially if they’re happening before you’re ready to embrace them. The phenomenon where a person starts aging earlier than expected age is known as premature aging. Progeria is an extremely rare disease of advanced childhood characterized by many of the superficial aspects of aging, such as baldness, thinning of the skin, vascular disease and prominence of blood vessels of the scalp. There are several ways that effects the premature aging:

The branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and stoppage of disease in older people and the problems specific to aging. There is no certain age at which patients may be undergoing the vigilance of a geriatrician, or geriatric physician, a physician who specializes in the care of older people. Preferably, this decision is determined by the single patient needs, and the availability of a specialist. It is more important to note the difference between geriatrics, the care of older people, and gerontology, which is the study of the aging process itself. However, geriatrics is sometimes called medical gerontology. Geriatrics differ from standard adult medicine because it focuses on the unique needs of the elderly person. The aged body is different physiologically from the younger adult body, and during old age, the reduction of various organ systems becomes manifest.

The traditional aging theories grasp that aging is not an adaptation or genetically programmed. Aging is the result upcoming changing on and off of certain genes, with senescence being defined as the time when age-associated deficits are exhibited. Based on the evolutionary concepts these two ways of theory are also called as non-programmed aging theories (where ageing is considered the result of an organisms inability to better conflict natural deteriorative processes), and programmed ageing theories. Three crucial psychosocial theories of aging activity theory, disengagement theory, and continuity theory are summarized and evaluated. Latest biological theories of aging in humans currently fall into two main categories: programmed and damage or error theories.
Some of the theories of aging are:
- Track 4-1Gene theory
- Track 4-2Auto Immune Theory
- Track 4-3Wear and Tear Theory
- Track 4-4Free Radical Theory
Disorders which are associated with aging are more likely to appear in early 60’s. The incidence of the following disorders will grow gradually with age. Aging disorders do not refer to childhood diseases like chicken pox but it refers to disorders of elder people. Common conditions in aged people include hearing loss, cataracts and refractive errors, neck and back pain, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and osteoarthritis diabetes, depression. Furthermore, as people are getting older, they are more likely to experience several conditions at the same time. Aged persons are also characterized by the emergence of several complex health states that tend to occur later in life and that do not fall into discrete disease categories. These are commonly called geriatric syndromes. The following some of the disorders of aging.
- Track 5-1Alzheimer’s disease

Aging is the process of becoming older. Aging can also be referred as single cell within an organism which have been ceased dividing (cell senescence) or to the population of a species (population aging). It represents the increment of modifications in an individual over time, encompassing physical, mental, and social modifications. Gerontology is a multidisciplinary study which includes biology, psychology and sociology. It is the study of social, cultural, cognitive, mental and biological factors of aging. Gerontology means it is the study of aging and older adults. The science of gerontology has developed and old age has improved. Researchers in this field are multiple and are trained in areas such as physiology, social science, psychology, public health, and policy.

Aging and Mental Health examines the biological, psychological and social aspects of aging as they relate to mental health. It emphasizes the various strategies, therapies and services which may be control at improving the mental health of the elderly. With a better diet, the physical fitness, public health, and health care, more people are reaching retirement age (but not necessarily retiring) and they all are in better physical and mental health than in the past. Trends show that the generality of chronic disability among older people is reduced. While some disability is the result for more general losses of physiological functions with normal aging and extreme disability in older persons which is not an assured part of aging. As we are aged, we face many changes and many sources of stress.

Genetics of aging which deals with life extension and it is associated with genetic alterations which lead to changes in lifespan. There is an unparalleled rise in human life expectancy in the past two centuries. Sustaining longer survival will require an understanding of the topics like mechanisms of aging and genetics which is considered as a powerful tool for the identification of these mechanisms. The first mutation is found to increase longevity in an animal was the age-1 gene in Caenorhabditis elegans. Drosophila melanogaster lifespan has been doubled. Genetic mutations in mice may be increased to maximum lifespan of 1.5 times normal, and up to 1.7 times normal when it is combined with calorie restriction.

The branch of medicine which focus to restore the functional ability and quality of the life of the elderly people suffering with physical impairments or disabilities by knee and hip replacements, the improvement physicians use physical, occupational and speech therapies. Aged people often suffer from physical and mental changes. The main geriatric rehabilitation is communication which acts as a key role. The main aim of geriatric rehabilitation is to enlarge the life span and the quality of life of aged people. Geriatric rehabilitation covers three areas like normal aging due to disuse and deconditioning, cardiovascular problems like vascular disease and stroke, and some skeletal problems including osteoporosis and osteoarthritis conditions such as knee and hip replacements.
Aging is a biological process which is unavoidable. For the perception of health in human beings and their well-being, certain anti-aging strategies have been evolved. Anti-aging now has a number of quite different common meanings and implications, each of which is championed by a particular group or they lose an affiliation of interests. Advocates for these groups have a way of drop into the fray without defining their terms, and this tends to read about the surrounding discussions somewhat confusing for a newcomer. In this scientific community anti-aging research mention complete slowing, preventing, or reversing the aging process. While the future is looking and promising, there is presently clear and available medical technology that slows or change aging in humans.

The study of changes in the nervous system that mainly happens during aging is called neuroscience of aging. The normal functional changes which are noticed are inability to focus, decrease in processing speed, decreased neural efficiency and nerve conductance. Neurogenesis takes place very little in adults, and it occurs only in the hypothalamus and striatum to a small extent in a process called adult neurogenesis. The volume of the brain decreases roughly 5% per decade after forty. It is currently unclear why the brain volume reduces with age, however, some causes may include: cell death, decreased cell volume, and changes in synaptic structure.

Dermatologists perform skin surgery. The branch of medicine that dealing with skin and skin diseases or skin related problems which is known as dermatology. Cosmetic treatments like facelift, liposuction and blepharoplasty come under cosmetic dermatology. We can find different fields under the branch of dermatology such as Dermatopathology which deals with the study of skin diseases and its effects. Trichology allot with the study of hair loss, hypertrichosis and hair abnormalities. Immunodermatology allot with the study of immune medicated or related skin diseases. Dermatoepidemiology deals with the study of skin diseases at population level. Sunlight contains ultraviolet light which is harmful to human skin cells.

Gerascophobists especially panic the fade of health, the risk of age-related diseases, and the unavoidable loss of well-being which comes along with the aging process. This involves restricted individual mobility, reliance on prescription medication, tooth decay and loss of denture, loss of bone density, accumulating genetic damage, vocal distortion, the loss of body functionality, Cataract, Arthritis, Gastrointestinal disease, hydration malfunction, desert-dry skin, the increasing risk of kidney failure and cancer, lymphoma, permanent irreversible brain, hearing loss, the loss of muscle mass (while fat increases), loss of fertility and potency; sensory deficits, cognitive decline, clumsiness, dementia, Alzheimer's, loss of mental chronometry and neuroplasticity), and the permanent loss of overall quality of life, all of which only gets worse and leads to a dead end.

Law for aged people is to strengthen and firm the legal rights, like dignity, autonomy, quality of life, and quality of care of aging persons. It boost the quality of life for elderly people, including those who are poor or otherwise isolated by lack of education, language, culture, disability or other barriers. Aging or ageing is a process of becoming older. The term which mention especially to human beings, many animals, and fungi, whereas for example bacteria, perennial plants and some painless animals that are potentially biologically immortal. In the broader sense, aging can mention single cells within an organism which have been ceased dividing or to the population of a species. In humans, the ageing constitutes the growth of interchanges in a human being over time and it can enclose physical, psychological, and social changes.

Choosing healthy foods may be a smart thing to achieve the ultimate goal of health and active maturing. Malnutrition is growing commonly within the older population. This can be a consequential issue since malnutrition can be very terrible for health. Many individuals over the age of 65 are each of two under- or over-nourished. Among aged individuals living in their own homes, almost 1 in 10 are suffering from under-nutrition. Many healthy aged adults reported that they skip at least one meal a day. On the further hand, as much as one-third of individuals above the age of 65 endure from over-nutrition. That’s, they eat too much. The result could be a big rate of overweight and obesity in this age group. The study of nutrition in human populations has individual theory and practical challenges.

Optimizing drug therapy is more essential part of caring an older person. The process of prescribing a medication is much complex and it includes: deciding which a drug is indicated, choosing the best drug, determining a dose and schedule appropriate for the patient's physiologic status, monitoring for effectiveness and toxicity, educating the patient about expected side effects, and indications for seeking consultation. Avoidable adverse drug events (ADEs) are the most serious consequences of inappropriate drug prescribing to the older aged people. Premarketing drug is a trial that often exclude geriatric patients and it approved doses may not be suitable for older adults.

The term “culturally diverse” is frequently used in interchangeably with the concept of “multiculturalism”. Individuals from each cultural context internalize the cultural values with age. These internalized cultural values enhance the goals which guide the adult development. When individuals are from different cultures each may pursue their own goals with age, cultural differences in socio - emotional aging occur. Cultural diversity plays a crucial role in aging. Culture describes that a group of individuals share common convictions, values, traditions, symbols, dialect, and socialization styles. Aging population is getting to be more different in terms of colour, culture, character, inability, and socio-economic standing.

Antioxidants which are the molecules that reduce the chance of ageing by reducing or maintaining the level of oxidants with or without free radical activity. Therefore, many people, “antioxidants” and “anti-aging” go hand-in-hand. Therefore, in a life span, the slowing process of ageing is very crucial. Our understanding on aging is completely limited. As a complex the biological process, aging involves different factors. On the single hand, the variation of average lifespan from various regions that is believed to be due to the differences in not only genes but also environmental conditions and eating habits. On the other hand, most organisms actually die from age-related diseases on behalf of aging itself. In modern society, aging-related neurodegenerative diseases which have been rising level threat to human beings.

Aging is a complicated process affecting the wide variety of physiological functions, which involves the development and maintenance of the immune system. Aging of the immune system, or immunosenescence, is multifaceted and damage both innate and adaptive responses. Overall, immunosenescence reduces the host’s ability to mount a strong or effective immune response. As a consequence resistance to pathogens which is impaired and the elderly are 2–10 times more likely to die of infection than the younger ones. Immunosenescence and concurrent health problems include the lungs and heart increase the risk of difficulty and death from viral infections in the elderly. Influenza is the fifth leading cause of death among people aged 50 years and older, and this group is a major target of vaccination campaign.

Mistreating elders is also known as elder abuse which causes harm to the older persons. There are so many situations which come under elder abuse. This includes harms caused by people. The older person may know them or shares a relation with them like family member, friend, relative or neighbor and care takers. Ageism the prejudice, stereotyping and discrimination of single individuals on the ground of their age - often goes unnoticed. Ageing trust and practices that are pervasive and lead to circumstances of abuse in all care settings – at home, in institutions and in the community – and to the failure to protect older persons from risk. Elder abuse is the most dangerous manifestation of ageism in society and is far from being informal: it is a widespread reality in all cultural contexts.
