We know our loved ones better than anyone else but often illness comes in a blink of an eye.  Our loved ones may have subtle changes that occur and most often go unnoticed.  Unfortunately, our loved ones may not complain of any discomfort or make us aware that there is something going on.     And in the majority of the cases the elderly will not have the signs and symptoms commonly seen in the adult and younger population.  So what are the silent killers I’m talking about?  Pneumonia and Urinary Tract Infections.
