The video discusses some of the changes that a person experiences as they age, including physical, reproductive, and sociological changes. It also discusses some of the problems that an older person may face, including a reduced appetite, weight loss, and dementia.

  • 00:00:00 The video discusses how, in recent history, the majority of people are living longer than ever before, with the expectation that by 2050, the worldwide population will reach 2 billion people, an increase of 900 million people over the 2015 figure. According to data and statistics from the World Health Organization, between 2015 and 2050, the percentage of residents of the planet over 60 years of age will nearly double, going from 12 to 22 percent. Changes in biological terms include: -A decrease in the volume of tissues and microscopically, there is a delay in differentiation and growth of cells, which leads to a decrease in the number of cells. -There is a decrease in water intracelular and an increase in adipose tissue. -A decrease in the thickness of the epidermal skin layer, functional aging producing alteration of cutaneous permeability, decrease in inflammatory reactions of the skin, reduction of the immune response, hair loss, decreased sensorial perception, and slowed growth. -In terms of structural changes in the skin, there are variations in the size and properties of basal cells, a decrease in melanin production, a reduction in the water content of intracelular water, and an increase in adipose
  • 00:05:00 The video discusses some physical changes experienced by a person during their lifetime, including muscle loss and age-related muscle fatigue. It also discusses changes in reproductive systems, including a decline in testosterone production in men and women and a feminization of the prostate in men. There are also sociological changes that affect a person's close environment and the larger society. These changes can be positive or negative, depending on the individual's personality and ability to cope with change.
  • 00:10:00 The video discusses the problems that can be faced by a person during their journey, specifically difficulties in their family life as a widower or being left out by other members of the family as the older person becomes relegated to a lesser role. This can be seen in two situations - when the older person is autonomous and independent, and when they are ill and dependent on other members of their family. The number one problem for those who suffer from a lack of appetite is that, as bad luck would have it, it appears at the worst possible time. This is because illness is closely related to hypoxia, which for us is a problem because when a person is ill, they need more energy and more nutrients to recover. It is important to keep a patient's morale up when their appetite is reduced due to any health issue, as it becomes increasingly difficult to describe how complicated rejection of any food menu becomes when there is a decrease in intake among our older patients. Our elderly patients start to lose weight and, over time, end up malnourished and developing chronic diseases as a result. Dementia due to aging of the brain leads to a progressive loss of memory and cognitive skills, as different areas of the brain die off. Park
