Our immune system is responsible for keeping us healthy on a day-to-day basis, fighting off viruses and bacteria that might otherwise make us sick. For some seniors, however, the immune system is compromised, leaving them especially susceptible to illness. In addition to getting sick more easily, having a compromised immune system also means that even a simple illness like a cold can be much more serious than it would in a healthy individual.
Combined with the delicate nature of the body in old age, having a compromised immune system can even be life-threatening. For this reason, seniors dealing with compromised immune systems require a very special kind of chronic care.
