Description:
This study on mental disorders in older Irish people is a further contribution to work by the National Council for the Elderly on the health and well-being of older people. In the past the Council has concentrated on the physical health of older people. In this report we focus on the mental health of older people and examine the treatments available to those with mental disorders. It is clear that while most older people are in good mental health a significant number suffer froma mental disorder at anyone time. The majority of those with a mental disorder will continue to function independently in the community, but many will require support from community care services to do so. In addition. some older people. particularly those with severe dementia, will usually require institutional care.
