The fear of aging or growing old is known as Gerascophobia. The symptoms of this problem are as follows:

  • Biological failure: People suffering from gerascophobia fear from age-related diseases and fading of their health and beauty. This starts when there is loss of body functionality such as tooth decay, eye sight problems, diabetes, blood pressure and hearing loss.
  • Surgery: People undergo plastic surgeries to look younger and wrinkle reduction treatments. This is considered as an early symptom of gerascophobia.
  • Fading Sense of purpose: Due to irreversible bad health conditions people tend to fear and lose hope which leads to fading sense of purpose towards life
  • Being an easy Crime Target: Elder people are considered as weak and easy targets to get robbed and elder abuse and thievery because of being weaker, slow reactions and less able to defend themselves.
