Description

This course material focuses on mental disorders (Alzheimers, Dementia, Depression) in older adults by reviewing the normal developmental milestones of aging and then considering the diagnosis and treatment of mental health problems for this population.

It reviews gains that have been made in providing services to this age group and discusses nontraditional and informal treatment options (a review of the different types of nursing facilities) as well as the role of the family and community in assisting older adults through the aging process.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Demonstrate knowledge of the aging process while becoming familiar with normal developmental milestones such as physical limitations and cognitive changes that occur during this period.

2. Recognize adaptive capacities in the aging process that allow older people to change, cope with loss, and pursue satisfying and productive activities.

3. Identify mental disorders in older people including risk factors that complicate diagnosis and treatment.

4. Describe progress that has been made to assist older individuals with mental health services and challenges associated with the delivery of these services.

5. Understand the role of the family, community, and consumers in supporting older adults in prevention and treatment of mental health problems.
