  • Chronic Pain
    Chronic pain is longstanding pain that persists beyond the usual recovery period or occurs along with a chronic health condition, such as arthritis.
  • Colorectal Cancer
    Most people who have colorectal cancer are older than 50. This type of cancer is also associated with a diet high in fat and calories and low in fiber.
  • Constipation

  • Dehydration and Heat Stroke
    Dehydration and heat stroke are two very common heat-related diseases that can be life threatening if left untreated.
  • Does Ageism Exist in Cancer Care?
    Older adults are less likely to be screened for cancer in the first place. And if they are diagnosed with cancer, it's less likely that their doctors will recommend treatment to cure the cancer.
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)/Heartburn
    Gastroesophageal reflux is the return of acidic stomach juices, or food and fluids, back up into the esophagus.
  • Gout
    Gout is marked by inflamed, painful joints because of the formation of crystal deposits in them.

    Hemorrhoids are blood vessels normally present in and around the anus and lower rectum that have become swollen because of stretching under pressure. Hemorrhoids are very common in both men and women.
  • Hypothermia
    Hypothermia is an abnormally low body temperature brought on by staying in cold temperatures for a long period of time. This lowered body temperature affects the brain, thus affecting a person's ability to think clearly or move well.
  • Indigestion
    Although indigestion may be the result of a disease or an ulcer in the digestive tract, most often it is caused by eating too much, eating too quickly, eating high-fat foods, or eating during stressful situations.
  • Influenza (Flu)
    How do you know if you have the flu? Symptoms: abrupt onset of fever, muscle aches, sore throat, and a nonproductive cough.
  • Older Adults and the Common Cold
    Cold and flu season is hard on everyone, but for older adults who may have chronic health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, it’s especially challenging.
  • Pneumonia
    Pneumonia is a serious inflammation of the lungs in which the air sacs fill with pus and other liquid.
