The Therapeutic Milieu and the Older Depressed Patient
Vickers, Raymond
Journal of Gerontology, 31, 3, 314-317, May 76
This article describes a program which reduced the number of elderly needing hospitalization. A team screening referrals for admission to a state hospital evaluated 434 consecutive cases. Over 51 percent were diagnosed depressed. By treating patients in the community, including brief local hospitalization where indicated, total geriatric admissions were reduced by 50 percent per annum. (Author)
