Summary:

Advances in disease management and illness prevention have contributed significantly to advancing longevity over the past century. Today an estimated 15 percent of the population in the United States is over age 65. This number is expected to more than double as “baby boomers” (those born during a period of unusually high birthrates from 1946 to 1964) become seniors. According to the 2017 United States census projections, by 2030 the number of those over age 65 will be greater than the number of children for the first time in history. Consequently, healthcare clinicians will have contact with elderly patients in increasing numbers. Treating these patients will require a fundamental knowledge of healthy aging, so it is paramount to know the effects of aging on the mind and body.

Objectives:

The goal of this module is to help healthcare providers to understand the interaction of psychological and physical aspects of aging in the absence of disease. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe the psychological and physical benefits that relationships provide in later life.
  • Discuss age-related sexual changes for men and women.
  • Identify at least three behavior choices that promote healthy aging.
