Working with Older People is Profound.

It gives a Perspective on life.

Geriatric Psychiatrists are medical doctors trained in the specialty of Psychiatry and with additional special training, knowledge and experience in the diagnosis and treatment of the mental and emotional and cognitive conditions that affect older individuals.  These disorders include such problems as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, paranoia, and other psychotic disorders, bipolar disorder, and other psychiatric conditions, as well as mixed medical and psychiatric syndromes, late-life family, situational, and relationship problems, cognitive disorders including the various types of dementia and delirium, together with the effects of various medical conditions and various medications that influence the mind, the emotional state, and brain functioning in older individuals.

 

A Geriatric Psychiatry Expert Consultant and Witness is a Psychiatric Physician who is able to consult, advise and testify about the multiple complex mental, emotional, and cognitive issues, as well as physical conditions, including medical conditions, illness and treatment, that may affect the mental and emotional functioning of older people.

It was as if all the elements agreed to participate in the same instant. The right film, the right lens, perfect light and of course, totally spontaneous act by my grandma."
