Editorial Reviews


"This is a good book which is well written and very readable. Its key success is in the inclusion of aspects of older persons' mental health care which have traditionally been neglected in the literature." (Journal of Dementia Care, July/August 2008)

"A good purchase for those specialising in the nursing of older people." (Primary Health Care)

"This is a useful book for student nurses and those wishing to gain a fundamental understanding of mental health needs in older people." (Journal of Community Nursing)

“Clear, precise and easy to follow…I am really interested in working with the older adult and found this book great to read and full of useful information. This book will be great reference for now and after I am finished with my training.” (Daniel Jenks; 3rd year nursing student; University of West Scotland)
