In elderly patients, intellectual disorders such as dementia and delirium are common. They affect the rate of rehabilitation and recovery significantly. While mild dementia is not a major problem, more severe patients may be confused or aggressive. Depressive patients’ motivation and participation in rehabilitation are impaired. Psychiatric help and antidepressant drugs may be useful in these patients. Asude Nursing Home has all the necessary navy and physician staff.

Slimming in the elderly is more difficult in middle age. A nutrition that is to be done in the control of our experts is very important. Even moderate weight loss, especially by older patients with gonarthrosis, can reduce the underlying symptoms and help mobility.
