Over this time period, the proportion of the population that is over the age of 65 will increase from 13.2% in 2000 to 22.5% in 2050; the proportion of the population that is age 85 and older will increase from 1.9% in 2000 to 5.2% in 2050. As a result of this consequence, Geriatric care management has been developed in San Antonio which entails working with persons of old age and their families in managing, rendering and referring various types of health and social care services.
