What Are Chronic Illnesses?

So, what is a chronic illness exactly? What separates chronic illnesses from acute ones? For a condition to be considered chronic, it has to last for over a year. It must also require medical attention and will impact the way an individual lives. Seniors face a wide range of chronic illnesses, but some of the most common include arthritis, asthma, respiratory illnesses, diabetes and heart disease. This list also includes individuals with dementia and certain types of cancer.
