Mental Health and The Older Citizen
Added: 22/05/2009
Australians are growing older but there is no need for despair because most ageing people live independent and satisfying lives. Generally, the message is — use it or lose it! People who stay active... outside the home, and maintain their interests, remain well to an advanced age. However, it would be a mistake to believe that health problems do not increase with age. Despite improvements in nutrition and health care, and regardless of better living conditions, the fact is that most people who are ill are elderly. There are also psychiatric conditions that affect people as they grow older. Therefore, it is useful to consider the mental health problems that can occur in old age and the care required in the community. This chapter explores these issues from the unique perspective of citizenship.

Ageing people both give and receive care and support within their homes and the community. The first section of this chapter takes a global overview of the various challenges people face when they tak...e on the primary caring role of ageing people. It covers such issues as the effect caring has on the emotional, psychological and physical wellbeing of carers. The second part of the chapter looks specifically at ageing people who are carers of middle-aged or younger people with life-long disabilities, primarily those people with an intellectual disability. Advice is shared with community-based health professionals about how to assist carers to access support for day-to-day caring responsibilities. The chapter also discusses the challenges facing all carers when they are thinking about relinquishing full-time care and the difficulties this transition may present.
