I saw that thank you, I have tried to read up on it but it doesn't really tell me what they can do for us, do they give medication, do they arrange help, do they tell us how to manage things better, do they put us in touch with other people who can help, this is what I mean when I say what do they do, I wondered how they can benefit us,Jeany - I think its a cross between what used to be called a Geriatrician and a Psychiatrist who deals primarily with older people.
Hope this link is helpful - the title is slightly different as they say old age psychiatrist but a quick look online and it seems the titles are somewhat fluid.
Thank you Celia good idea, I will do that in the morning xxIt does seem they work with other teams going by the article so I took that to imply they did referrals. Maybe you could ring the Doc's secretary to ask? If you say you want to make sure you have the right / relevant info and questions then I am sure they won't mind.
Thank you Sylvia that was what I was looking for, some personal experience, I knew what they were supposed to do but wanted to know if it could be a benefit to us,Dhiren`s doctor was a psychiatric geriatrician. He was unable to work miracles but he understood what was going on with Dhiren and how it affected me.
Dhiren was always on his best behaviour and managed to pull out all the stops.I just know that Allen will be having a good day and be on his best behaviour, I hope that they won't take him at face value,
