Between the mean score and the sex of the worker was a significant difference (P<0.05). Also, the average age of the patients was 65.69±10.93 and their awareness mean score was 4.29±1.9 out of 15. We also observed a significant difference between the awareness score, level of literacy and the job of the patients (P<0.05). Conclusion: On the basis of the research results we can conclude that, at first the percentage of patients being cared has been low and in the second, sending patients to doctors and their care by the doctors has also been low.
