Old age is characterized by physical

decline (at varied rates), as well as
increased comorbidity of disease and
chronic diseases (Timiras 2007, 33).
Research shows many chronic diseases
associated with aging are preventable
or modifiable, and related to the social
environment and lifestyle choices.
According to Whitbourne’s
The Aging
Individual: Physical and Psychological Perspectives
(2002), “Although the ultimate result of the aging process is a progressive loss of function, there are many steps that individuals can take to slow down the aging process, or to prevent deleterious effects of aging before they become apparent” (Whitbourne 2002, 2).
