We begin with an article on page 4 about geriatric medicine, a specialty currently in high demand, and playing a major role in fast-aging societies in countries around the world, including Thailand. Following on page 8, we provide information about health problems of the elderly, along with recommendations for prevention and care.

On page 12, a feature on geriatric dentistry, reminds us that elderly people often neglect their oral health, unaware that many geriatric problems start in the mouth. Followed by, an article about how skin changes as we age, along with care guidelines to protect and nurture lifelong healthy skin.

We conclude with a report on four key practices to support geriatric health. Following these recommendations will help people of all ages prepare for and maintain lifelong health.

As always, if you need advice or want to leave comments about our magazine, we encourage you to e-mail us at betterhealth@bumrungrad.com. We look forward to hearing from you and wish you health and happiness at every age.
