GERIATRIC PSYCHIATRY

Geriatric psychiatry is further known as psychogeriatric, geropsychiatry or psychiatry of old age. It is a subspecialty of psychiatry dealing with the study, hindrance, and behaviour of mental disorders in hominids with age. After a 4-year internship in psychiatry, a counsellor can ample a one-year fellowship in geriatric psychiatry. As the population ages, particularly in developing countries, this field is becoming more needed. The diagnosis, treatment and management of dementia and depression are two areas of this field.
