Written by noted authorities in geriatric psychiatry, this volume is a clinically oriented guide to the diagnostic workup and treatment of psychiatric and neuropsychiatric disorders in elderly patients. The book describes in detail the neurologic and neuropsychiatric patient assessment and the use of all treatment modalities, both psychotherapeutic and pharmacologic, in elderly patients.

Chapters discuss the treatment of disorders in all clinical settings—inpatient, outpatient, emergency, primary care, assisted living, and long-term care. Algorithms for workup and treatment are included, as well as case studies and personal accounts by patients and care providers. Appendices provide drug information and additional resources.
