The increasing number of geriatric populations in developed countries poses serious questions about how to promote and sustain independent living and a better quality of life for the elderly, whose physical and mental decline is ultimately unavoidable. Physical and mental decline in the elderly is highly variable and influenced by genetics; environment; socioeconomic status; culture; race; ethnicity; religiosity; family, community, state and national structures; along with many other factors. Physical and cognitive functional decline in the elderly may trigger maladaptive psychosocial behaviors that may include physical isolation and reclusiveness, hostility towards others including professional and family caregivers, depression, suicide and refusal of medication or treatment.
