Corona virus pandemic is everywhere. Older people are vulnerable to illness. Researches show that old people with medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, lung diseases or cancer and aging disorders are more likely to get effected by corona virus easily.
The foremost precautions to be taken are:

In the process of their aging, they tend to be lonely and unoccupied. In order to stay healthy and connected, technology plays a key role. We should practice the following to keep the elders involved and stress free
·         Teach them how to use smart phones, computer, laptops etc.
·         Teach them how to use social media.
·         Teach them how to video call so that they stay in touch with their dear ones.
·         These can be good times for the adults to occupy themselves and get involved in various activities in social media like chatting, video calling, reading various books and articles.
In this quarantine period technology plays a crucial role to keep the elders involved in activities which helps to improve their mental health.
It’s our responsibility to take care of our beloved elder people. Stay safe and keep them safe.

Gerascophobia: The fear of Getting Old

The fear of aging or growing old is known as gerascophobia. It is originated from a Greek word gerasko which means “I am Old”. The symptoms of this problem are as follows:
  • Biological failure: People suffering from gerascophobia fear from age-related diseases and fading of their health and beauty. This starts when there is loss of body functionality such as tooth decay, eye sight problems, diabetes, blood-pressure and hearing loss.
  • Surgery: People undergo plastic surgeries to look younger and wrinkle reduction treatments. This is considered as an early symptom of gerascophobia.
  • Fading Sense of purpose: Due to irreversible bad health conditions people tend to fear and lose hope which leads to fading sense of purpose towards life
  • Being an easy Crime Target: Elder people are considered as weak and easy targets to get robbed and elder abuse and thievery because of being weaker, slow reactions and less able to defend themselves.
·         Regular counselling by professional therapists
·         Living a quality life
·         Having Positive Thoughts
·         Following Anti-Aging Strategies
·         Elder Care
By following the above precautions one can avoid the phobia of getting old and can lead a happy and healthy aging life.

Fear is ones worst enemy. It leads to worst conditions mentally and physically. There is no escape from aging and there is no reverse process of aging. One should accept the fact and move on, that too happily. Aging is an unavoidable, but healthy aging is adaptive.
