Abstract

Stroke can affect individuals of any age but mostly occurs in elderly people. For each decade after the age of 55 years, the stroke rates doubles in both men and women. Worldwide, the aging of the population increases the importance of primary and secondary prevention interventions for stroke among the elderly group.
