About "geriatric psychiatry"

Geriatric psychiatry is a branch of psychiatry which deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of mental disorders in older individuals. It also deals with the biological and psychological aspects of aging, mental effects of acute and chronic illnesses, and the causes and triggers of psychiatric disturbances in older patients. The common mental diseases seen in old age are dementia, anxiety, late-life addiction, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, alcoholism, substance abuse, and depression. Older patients deal with multiple psychological issues like feeling isolated, lack of purpose, grief over the loss of friends and family members, and fear of illness or death. A geriatric psychiatrist has to treat older patients uniquely as these patients might already have many physical diseases due to aging. The psychiatrist has to treat the person as a whole rather than just addressing the psychological problems.
