The diagnosis and treatment of the elderly psychotic is problematical due to the fact that many of them have either Alzheimer's disease or vascular disease-related dementia. Expert contributors present the newest research based on clinical studies of the handling and treatment of elderly patients whose psychosis may be directly related to an incurable organic disease. They offer a multi-faceted approach to the treatment of these patients ranging from the medical, neurological, psychopharmacological, and therapeutic to social and family considerations. Assessment and Treatment of the Elderly Neuropsychiatric Patient also includes chapters dealing with attitudes toward death and dying as well as psychoanalysis.
