Old Age Psychiatric and Psychological Problems

Written by 


People of old age are vulnerable to specific forms of psychopathology that could be a result of different physical conditions. Cardiovascular, Endocrine, Degenerative Central Nervous System processes, together with psychological problems, like loss of friends, spouses, close relatives, social isolation – could contribute to the development of mental conditions of different severities.


In many cases the family and the surrounding people see those conditions as an inevitable consequence of aging and consider them as untreatable. However, for many old people this is not the case. Precise diagnosis and complex treatment of both physical and mental conditions could dramatically improve the life quality of a person. In some cases it seems like magic.
