Old Age Psychiatry

Geriatric psychiatry or Old Age psychiatry deals with patients aged above 65 yrs of age. In the elderly there are more chances of having two or more problems coexisting at the same time. Eg. A patient with parkinson's Disease while being treated may also have suspiciousness and aggression.
