3. Heart examination; this can be done in a hospital or any medical center. The reason this is very important for any aging man or woman is because they are not only more likely to get heart disease, but also more likely to die from heart-related problems, so you need to always have a heart check to make sure your heart is going well.
4. Vision test; many chronic eye diseases will appear in old age. Eye problems, such as glaucoma, cataracts, etc. With age, everything is sufficient, but if you can diagnose it early, it won't be so difficult to deal with it.
