Geriatric psychiatry

Geriatric psychiatry is the practice of psychiatry in older adults and well-known as Geropsychiatry or Psychogeriatrics. Geriatric psychiatrists are at the forefront of providing education, research, and clinical care in relation to patients and their families with a variety of neuro-psychiatric syndromes specific to their age. They are also trained in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health problems that arise more frequently in older patients such as dementia, depression, anxiety, late-life addiction and psychotic disorders. There is a necessity that they expect and plan geriatric care in the health care system, as well as in the family and community.
