Aged Care is simply taking care of the elderly. It consists of services like elderly assistance and caring, adult day care, long term care, nursing home and hospice. Traditionally we have seen that most aged care was in the home but now, due to the modern complexities of life, many institutions provide aged care. The size of the aging population is also sometimes affected by culture. In Japan the rate at which the aging population is increasing is almost twice the rate of European countries. This is because in Japan, culturally, people need to “act their age”. So when people reach a certain age they stop working and start living a free life. This puts a lot of pressure on the society and elderly health care.
The main concern in the aged population is the loss of mobility. When people grow old they loose their ability to walk, climb and not fall; they become disabled. Due to this factor most aged care remedies are based on therapies that work the muscles and nerves. These therapies help to reduce the rate at which elderly people lose their mobility.
