CORE Geriatrics and Gerontology

Brazil is aging and in RS this phenomenon is faster than in the rest of the country. In October 2019 it was identified a historic demographic reversal in RS. For the first time the state has more elderly than children 0-14 years (SeniorLab Market and Consumer 60+). Only the numbers justify longer think in study design and care to this population. But the most important factor is that the elderly population is very diverse and has specific needs quite different from other age group. These differences require study and specialized care, especially when it comes to mental and cognitive health. In addition, age is not an individual process and involves the whole family that will also need our attention, even when aging is healthy.
