What is Psychogeriatrics?
Psychogeriatrics is a branch of psychiatry that deals with the assessment and treatment of mental and emotional problems in old age. My experience in this field began when I was the social worker at the Psychogeriatric Ward in the Beer Yaacov Regional Mental Health Center and increased when I directed the Survivor Home for psychiatrically inflicted Holocaust survivors. I firmly believe that any elderly person suffering from depression or any other emotional distress should receive appropriate psychotherapeutic as well as medical intervention. I have worked closely with Holocaust Survivors and published articles about my work.
