Geriatric psychiatry or Old Age psychiatry manages patients matured over 65 yrs of age. In the elderly, there are more odds of having at least two issues coinciding in the meantime. Our approach is increasingly a group approach, particularly when managing Old Age concerns.
Most commonly seen Old Age Psychiatric problems are:
Dementia – Alzheimer’s and other types
Behavioural Problems like Disinhibition, Aggression, Suspiciousness (Suspecting spouses infidelity)
