Old Age: One-way Path? We all want to reach old age. In fact, we need to. What we do not know is how we are going to live our late years and this tends to become a source of anxiety, even more so than death. Science has done a great deal to increase life expectancy during the past few decades. The number of elderly people is on the rise, and many have survived what were once deadly diseases. However, our society has not been able to solve the problems associated to this growing elderly population. Whether ailing or healthy, lucid or senile, all elderly people are vulnerable and face a harsh reality for which we must be socially and individually prepared. What can be done? What can be prevented? Doctor Ernesto Lammoglia takes us through the later years of our life. With his habitual straightforward clarity and ironic, he takes a look at old age and its physical, mental, emotional, and social aspects.
