Abstract

The trend of population ageing is a critical global condition and is expected to impose dire socio-economic ramifications on populations in the near future. Its contribution to the global burden of disease is increasing, and the implications of this situation for the future are awe-inspiring. This paper draws from the researchers’ experience and relevant literature to recommend a framework that would guide the development and institutionalization of a specialized system of geriatric care, hereby called emotional geriatric care. The application of this framework by governments and health care organizations is expected to constantly improve care for the elderly as a way of gearing health care administration in response to ageing.
