There is huge problem with bodily problems like arthritis, plantar fasciitis and other bone related problem.

Old age means apart from bodily discomfort, there is a problem with psychological states of people. There is a huge part of psychology which will look into the old age and the related issues. It had been said that people in old age will ponder upon their life and decide on the fact of what had they achieved in life. If they feel satisfied, then there is no rise of crisis and psychological disturbance. But, if they are unsatisfied with what they had done with their life, they will not be ready to die. This will cause incongruence between the ideal self and real self causing problem for the person leading them to be in a state of crisis where they will need some way to make up for the past.
There are other things like external factors from the environment, which will affect the person’s last years. The person’s friends, children, mates, relatives and other people can be considered as factors influencing a person’s life satisfaction in general. In old age, apart from their own retrieval, they will consider the level to which they had reached and what the society thinks of them.
