Aging is the strongest risk factor for developing chronic diseases and/or injuries and thus, elderly people often have multiple health problems (multimorbidity).

Akner G, Gustafson Y. Personalized geriatric medicine. European Geriatric Medicine. 2014; 5(3): 145-146. Available at: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1878764914000680



This means that elderly people with multimorbidity dominate in all parts of health care; in hospitals, in primary care and in community care.
