Dementia And Mental Illness In The Old

Dementia And Mental Illness In The Old

by ElaineMurphy (Author), ElaineMurphy (Author)


In Britain today more women are caring for old people than for babies. Dementia and other mental illnesses in old age affect one in ten of the elderly population and create an enormous burden for relatives. This practical guide written primarily for the general public is updated with information on the new community care legislation. It explains what dementia is, where to go for help, how to get in contact with specialist hospital services, community psychiatric nurses and home helps and offers advice on how to cope with day-to-day problems.
