Abstract

With the medical field making constant and dramatic improvements in treatment and prevention of disease progression, life expectancies in the United States are increasing dramatically, with the elderly population demonstrating the greatest expansion. This substantial increase in the elderly population creates new and unfounded challenges in treating and caring for this sect of the population. In 1990, the American Medical association stated that “. . . one of the most important tasks that the medical community faces today is to prepare for the problems in caring for the elderly in the 1990’s and the 21st century” [1]. This particular study emphasized the need to develop and sustain means of special care for the growing population of the frail and vulnerable elderly.
