The world is ageing rapidly. People aged 60 and older make up 12.3 per cent of the global population, and by 2050, that number will rise to almost 22 per cent. With this surge many issues are underlying related to blood pressure, diabetes, heart failure issues, arthritis, cancer malignancy, joint pains, tuberculosis and majorly the lack of awareness regarding the changing behavioural patterns in elderly people at home leading to abuse of them by their kin.
The goal of this Conference is uniting all well-known gerontologists, geriatrics scholars, policy decision-makers, professional activists, related companies, and researchers to discuss and share knowledge in the emerging field of Aging and Gerontology and its related areas of research and how we can move towards more Healthy Living, Healthy Aging to Promote an Ageless Era and hence widening professional contact and create new opportunities, including establishing new collaborations to all the representatives.
Many technological developments are taking place for elderly care like Medical Alert Systems, Telemedicine, Web based programs like Electronic medical records (EMRs) and electronic health records (EHRs), Smart Homes, Sensors and Actuators and many more. It is a point discussion that how easily are these developments available for geriatric population and how together we can create right set of policies which can equip individuals, families and societies to address these challenges and to reap its benefits.
