Psychiatric care for Older People
Older adults (generally those aged 65 and over) are more susceptible to a number of illnesses that require particular expertise. Dr Contell holds a specialist consultant qualification in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of a full range of psychiatric disorders relevant to older adults, such as Alzheimer's and dementia and late onset anxiety and depression.
New advances with medication and other rehabilitative treatments are helping those people with memory problems to live longer fuller lives. The most important thing is to detect the signs of memory problems and act on them as early as possible. Lifestyle changes, possibly supplemented by appropriate medication, can give significant benefits.
At Care Psychiatry they work with a wide variety of skilled therapists including counsellors and clinical psychologists to treat psychological difficulties. Ifpsychological therapy forms part of the recommended treatment plan, Dr Contell will refer you to a therapist that will be selected as having the most appropriate skills and approach.
