Summary:

An estimated 20% of Americans older than 65 have some form of mental or neurocognitive disorder. The most prevalent conditions are anxiety disorders, mood disorders and severe cognitive impairment. In nursing homes, two-thirds of residents suffer from some form of diagnosable mental health illness. As the population of older adults grows, so will the need for healthcare providers knowledgeable in geriatric mental health and illness. This second part of a two-part series on aging examines psychiatric conditions most common in older adults.

Objectives:

The purpose of this program is to review mental illnesses in older adults. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Discuss the manifestation and treatment of anxiety disorders and mood disorders
  • Identify and describe at least two neurocognitive disorders and distinguish them from delirium and depression
  • Discuss the interaction of schizophrenia symptoms with the aging process
