Product Overview

As the baby boom generation ages, the number of people requiring long-term care will grow dramatically in developed nations. A majority of them will become increasingly frail and suffer from dementia and associated neuropsychiatric symptoms.

Against this backdrop, Psychiatry in Long-Term Care, Second Edition (first published under the title Psychiatric Care in the Nursing Home) comprehensively reviews the present state of knowledge on how to identify the major psychiatric disorders affecting residents of long-term care facilities and how to intervene. Edited and written by some of the world's foremost authorities, the book provides in-depth coverage of topics such as these:

- General approaches to assessment and treatment of behavioral disturbances

- Depression

- Anxiety

- Dementia

- Sleep impairment

- Psychosis

- Substance use disorders

- Contemporary strategies for successful psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic interventions

Complementing these chapters with clinical guidelines on specific disorders are chapters on medicolegal considerations, ethics, and education of care staff.

The new edition is an important resource for care providers from all disciplines devoted to improving the well being of people in long-term care facilities and for students and scholars of mental health and aging.
