Gerascophobia Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy Gerascophobia (G. geras [old age]) is an abnormal and persistent fear of growing old. Sufferers of this fear experience undue anxiety about aging even though they may be in good health physically, economically and otherwise. They may worry about the loss of their looks, their independence, inactivity after retirement, impaired mobility, the onset of disease, and confinement in a nursing home. Modern society's preoccupation with youthful beauty does nothing to alleviate their fears.
