The elderly are a fundamental part of society. They have lived for decades, have faced all kinds of situations over the years and have served their families, the companies they have worked for and their countries, so at a time of physical fragility such as old age, it is a moral imperative to take care of them. 

The pathologies faced by the elderly are very varied and, also, they suffer from them in different intensities. With regard to neurological disorders, these are diseases that affect aspects such as motor skills or the proper flow of the mind, and are therefore particularly cruel.
