A Decline in Body Systems
CarePilot's Clinical Director Dr Tuly Rosenfeld, Geriatrician and Associate Professor, has been interviewed by the ABC Health & Wellbeing to answer the question "Can you die from old age?"
Dr Rosenfeld explains that as we age we have a decline in our body systems and our body accumulates this damage, resulting in cells no longer repairing themselves and our immune system weakening.
Diseases affect mobility leading to a likelihood of having a fall, which may lead to hospitalisation.
