Many people are unaware of the special needs that senior citizens may have when faced with a digestive motility disease or disorder. In fact, at this juncture, there are no other organizations that draw attention specifically to this special group of motility patients.

Along with the struggles of digestive motility problems, senior citizens are often further challenged by the manifestations of age itself.

Some of the issues that seniors may confront include a loss of mobility and less activity, being bedridden, taking multiple medications, nutritional concerns, depression, isolation and a loss of independence, which can all compound the effects of the digestive motility problems.

AGMD strives to highlight the importance of providing for the needs of the senior population affected with digestive motility diseases and disorders.
