Synopsis
Medical problems occur at an increasing rate after one reaches the age of 65. Many of these conditions can be prevented if people plan ahead and take better care of their bodies. This useful, informative handbook explains what is likely to happen after 65--both the good news and the bad news--and what individuals can do to promote better health in their later years. The book includes a valuable medical questionnaire that will help the reader, as well as the physician, develop an in-depth understanding of health situations. Medical problems occur at an increasing rate after one reaches the age of 65. Many of these conditions can be prevented if people plan ahead and take better care of their bodies. This useful, informative handbook explains what is likely to happen after 65--both the good news and the bad news--and what individuals can do to promote better health in their later years. The book includes a valuable medical questionnaire that will help the reader, as well as the physician, develop an in-depth understanding of health situations. The first of its kind, this medical handbook fosters a needed approach: active participation in one's own health care. The author discusses and explains the major health issues that confront senior citizens and their caregivers. Preventive medicine is stressed--for example, dealing with calcium deficiency in women and heart disease in men. Personal documentation and legal preparation are discussed, and a health questionnaire is provided to facilitate the building of a comprehensive medical profile. A valuable resource for families, doctors, and individuals.
