Abstract

Being elderly is not a disease, but it is an advanced stage of a process of life characterized by a decreased ability of the body to adapt to stressors. In general, signs of aging process begin to appear since the age of 45 years and will cause problems at the age of about 60 years (Santrock, 2006). The elderly people are part of a growing number of family members and community members in line with increasing life expectancy. Increasing the number of elderly people will have an impact on socio-economic status both in families, communities, and within the government. An important economic implication of increasing population is an increase in the old age ratio and their dependency. This dependence is due to the condition of many elderly people experiencing physical and psychological impediment, although these hindrance occur in the old age are natural thing (Kuntjoro, 2002). Some of the declines in the elderly can be cognitive problems (Harmand, et al. 2014), dementia disorders (Kooten, Smalbrugge, Wouden, Stek, & Hertogh, 2017), sleepiness disorder and depression (Chen, Huang, Cheng, Li, & Chang, 2015), as well as the risk of falling and resulting in broken bones difficult to be cured (Cox, et al., 2016).
