InWestern countries, the elderly population constitutes about 15 percent of the whole population.However, this rate consumes more than fifty percent of the admission to hospitals and forty percent of the health care resources. In Turkey this rate is about six percent.The average life expectancy in Turkey is estimated about 72,37 years(For men 70 years,for woman75 years). This situation defined as aging is a process which has physiological, psychological, economic and social aspects . Yet , in most countries the age of 65 is accepted as the retirement age and old age limit because of the demographic and economic reasons. But it's accompanied by a lot of pathological changes and chronic diseases. In Medicine the word ‘ geriatrics’ means "Old Medical". All over the world, including the issue of the health of the elderly, it is referred as old age science. In Medicine ‘Geriatrics’ is the science that includes scientific applications based on the targets concerning the protection of people’s health, prevention of diseases, enabling people to lead their lives without being isolated from society and evaluation of treatment in many ways in later years of life. Aging of population causes several consequents in economic and social areas. Aging affects the fields such as production-consumption, income distribution policy, family policy and social security policies, health policies, which the State's macro and long-term solutions must supply .
