Abstract

The ageing process is associated with increasing life expectancy in the community and it means more and more people are going to require more health care and maintenance. In keeping pace with demographic changes, the number of places taken in residential care homes, nursing homes and hospitals are on the rise. In order to develop new health care treatments and management strategies of an elderly population, a clear in-depth understanding of the process and phenomena of the aging population is urgently required. Accordingly, this research attempts to deal with the consequences of the elderly population by studying the process and phenomena of aged population in developed countries.
