Session on: Social Theories of Aging 

Social theories of aging are expected progressions from midlife to older life based on social factors. Aging has been looked at from different perspectives, but particularly from the biological, psychological and social point of view. The biological theories of aging attempt to describe the phenomenon as a programmed event, and that it arises as a result of constant wear and tear, whereas the psychological concept describes aging in terms of the specific changes in behavior and cognitive functions. On the other hand, the social theories explain how factors such as the prevailing circumstances, available resources, social accelerators, etc can either speed up or slow down the process of aging.

Session on: Immune System and Aging 

Aging is a multifaceted process, involving numerous molecular and cellular mechanisms in the context of different organ systems. A key element of aging is a collection of functional and structural changes in the immune system. The impacts of aging on the immune system are noticeable at various concentrations, including decreased manufacturing of B and T cells in bone marrow and thymus and diminished function of mature lymphocytes in secondary lymphoid tissues. As a result, elderly individuals do not respond to immune challenges as robustly as the young. The aging research can be used to describe the cellular changes that happen in the immune system.

Session on: Aging Demographics 

An increasing share of the population is living beyond 65 years of age. In 1900, only 5% of the population was over 65. In year 2030 it is projected that nearly 20% of the population will be older than 65. Women’s life expectancy charts demonstrate a marked improvement in life expectancy between 51 years in 1900 and 80 years in the year 2000. In this era, a shortage of young workers and the ever increasing retired population will create more economical and financial dependency.

Session on: Environmental Gerontology 

Environmental gerontology is a specialization within gerontology that seeks an understanding and interventions to optimize the relationship between aging persons and their physical and social environment in understanding the aging population and improved the quality of life in old age. Environmental gerontology studies shows that in their immediate setting, elderly individuals prefer age, whereas spatial knowledge and location attachment are essential to understand the process.

Session on: Geriatric Care

Geriatric care management is the process of planning and coordinating care of the elderly people and with physical and mental implements to meet their long term care needs, they can improve maintain their independence as long as possible and quality to life. The increasing geriatric population is coupled with growing number of chronic diseases and increasing number of long-term care services.

Session on: Aging and Mobility

Mobility is the joy of moving spontaneously and effortlessly. Healthy muscles, bones and joints permit us to make all types of activities- from ordinary tasks to loving our favorite hobbies. Some of the first visible signs of aging may be changes to posture and walk, as well as tiredness and general faintness doing everyday tasks. Aging affects muscle mass and strength, bone density, and can make joints harder and less flexible due to reduction of cartilage thickness. The reduction of bone density that is common in older age makes bones weaker which in turn may lead to increased risk of fractures.

Nutrition has a major role in defending health and slowing disease progression. Outlines that endorse the nutritional mechanisms of healthy aging are needed to increase and to maintain healthy, functional lives for as long as possible.

Introduction:

Global aging market is predicted to witness healthy growth over the forecast amount attributable to vital factors like increasing geriatric population and perpetually up geriatric care management services infrastructure. What is more, growing demand for aging studies and medicine graduate programs and favorable government initiatives are the most important factors contributive to the event of aging market. In addition, handiness of assorted care homes, adult day care centers, power- assisted living and nursing homes is one in every of the vital success factors for the expansion of the market over the forecast amount.

Driven by falling fertility rates and noteworthy will increase in expectancy, population aging can continue, even accelerate.

Market Share in Asia:

Today, Asia’s old square measure is targeted primarily within the younger segments of the old-age population cluster. Over time, however, the best will increases in population can occur with the oldest age groups. Of all Asians age 55 and older, roughly common fraction square measure currently between the ages of 55 and 64, regarding common fraction square measure between 65 and 74, and virtually one sixth square measure are 75 and above. These proportions can stay fairly stable over consequent 25 years, however over the consequent 25-year amount the proportion within the oldest age group (75 and above) is predicted to extend substantially—from 15%  in 2000 to 17% in 2025 so up to 27% in 2050.
