When people age, many tasks that were once easy for them to do suddenly become difficult to accomplish. If you notice, you don’t see senior citizens engaging in sports such as boxing or football. That’s because as people grow old, their physical health deteriorates. They have slower reflexes, decreased vision and hearing. Some old-age illnesses may also crop up or worsen.
