Abstract

Since the early 1980s consensus has been reached on the diagnosis and treatment of some mental disorders in elderly persons, but systems for delivery of comprehensive care have yet to be developed. The importance of specialized training in treating mental disorders has been recognized with the development of certification in geriatric psychiatry, and the percentage of psychiatrists with a significant proportion of geriatric patients has increased. At the same time, procedures for reimbursement for services to the elderly through Medicare have become more complex. Providing mental health care to the elderly population remains a challenge for which each decade will bring progress as well as new problems to solve.
