Older adults aged 65 and over with mental health problems such as mild to moderate dementia, depression and psychotic illnesses who cannot be treated and supported appropriately at home or in an alternative setting.
What are the next stages to recovery
Following discharge from the ward patients could return home with an individualised care package if required, a period of Day Hospital attendance, follow up by the old age consultant in the Outpatient Clinic and/or involvement of the Community Mental Health Team or Dementia Home Treatment Team. For patients who are not able to return to their own home, assistance is offered prior to discharge to identify suitable alternative accommodation.
