There is a new perception of reaching old age ( boomers.) We boomers’ are more active and is taking an active role in our health and wellness well- being. We look forward to the future with much hope and optimism.
According to a recent US census estimates that those who are over 65 years will surpass those who are 5 years old by the year 2020 and as most boomers’ becomes more tech-savvy manufacturers and entrepreneurs needs to find new ways to cater to this age group and find new ways to meet our challenges yet allow us to live our lives fully.
I worked as a CNA for a number of years, before retirement and during my time working in the field, I have come across a number of elderly people suffering from different types of chronic lung disease.
It was very painful for me to watch them laboring to breathe even with the aid of oxygen in some cases and it was still very difficult,
So I think we should look at some of these chronic lung diseases and their causes and what we could do to prevent them in our effort in maintaining good health.
