Mental Healthcare Of The Elderly

Mental Healthcare Of The Elderly

Mental healthcare in many Asian countries mirrors the British model, which in the past was focused on the large mental asylum but now has a community emphasis. Geriatric Psychiatry books in libraries and bookshops are mainly from Britain and North America. In recent years, Asian countries have begun to rethink, reorganise and introduce innovations to improve their mental health services. Mental Healthcare of the Elderly contains some of these new ideas and is a primer for health professionals who are involved in the care of elderly people with mental health problems like depression and dementia.
