Age-friendly health care is an approach to care designed to support and to serve persons in age-appropriate ways, resulting in beneficial outcomes. Needless to say, such an approach is needed and wanted by older adults. The medical concerns of an infant are dramatically different than those of an elder. Likewise, the age of a person is an essential factor when designing an effective plan of care. Today, the realization that far too few medical professionals are specifically trained to care for the aging population is coming home to roost. Consequently, it is encouraging to note the advances being made in age-friendly care and age-friendly health care systems.
