Abstract

The term elderly refers to those who are 65 years old or older. The number of older people will increase in every country. As people get older, some changes will happen including mind, body, and their view of the world. The brain will become less efficient at creating memories, decreasing physical activities and posture. However, aging is not a lost youth, but a new stage of opportunity and strength.Therefore, some compensation are needed, such as increasing awareness about physical exercise and prevention of the negative impacts of aging.
