Our View of Geriatrics

While our prime purpose is to give scholarships, the other purpose of our foundation is to carry out studies to support geriatrics and gerontology.

Geriatrics and gerontology mean to meet not just the medical needs but also psychological and social needs of middle age and above adults. While the science of geriatrics focuses on medical issues, gerontology with a wider scope, examine the continuum of senescence. Not only for just the elderly; but it also lays emphasis on the environmental and nutritional factors while growing old.
When demographic data is examined, we see that people live longer compared to the past, birth rates go down and the older people population is rising.
When TUIK data is examined, the life expectancy at birth will be 75,8 in men and 80,2 in women in the year 2023.
According to World Health Organisation; health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Together with the increase in life expectancy at birth, to improve the quality of living is vital to growing older healthier.
EGET Foundation, basing its actions on geriatrics and gerontology science and enriching its studies with the contributions of this science supports the methods to keep the elderly in the center of life instead of keeping them away from life and also a healthy and natural nutritional diet.
