What Are Chronic Illnesses?

An illness can be considered chronic if it requires medical attention for at least one year. Keeping in mind the duration of chronic illnesses, it comes as no surprise that they can dramatically disrupt a person’s daily life and reduce their ability to take care of themselves. Some examples of chronic conditions that often develop in seniors are arthritis, asthma, respiratory illnesses, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis and more.
