Over the last twenty years, researchers and psychiatrists have discovered that the occurrence of mental illness in older people presents a unique set of challenges. Proper diagnosis, for example, can be more difficult, since the effects of aging factor into the presentation. In this volume, the author documents the wide range of published guidelines for the diagnosis, investigation and treatment of mental disorders affecting older people. It explores Alzheimer's Disease and other dementias, depression and vascular problems. Focusing on aspects essential for the clinician, this comprehensive and practical book is invaluable to all those involved in the treatment, management, and care of older people.
