about

About 2 million people in the U.S. over the age of 65 have a diagnosis of depression. At least 4 million people have some form of dementia. The highest rate of suicide is in this group. There are millions of elderly persons with other mental health problems that are affecting families, friends and society in general. What do these numbers mean? They demonstrate the widespread nature of these conditions which are seen on a daily basis. These are the confused, forgetful, wandering, combative, depressed, withdrawn or socially inappropriate elderly, who impact all of us. These people can be helped. We must not assume these problems are a normal part of the aging process. Elder Interventions is a step-by-step handbook for families, friends and caregivers who are dealing with these issues on a daily basis. This book leads the reader through the process of identifying and evaluating these emotional/behavioral problems, and then developing concrete plans to treat them. This text provides advice on topics ranging from taking car keys away from a dangerous driver to preventing an old person from wandering. It is rich with clinical stories that both explain technique and inspire optimism. An essential guide for any family, Elder Interventions is sure to educate and motivate all who care for the elderly.
