Abstract :

The geriatric population is rapidly increasing in India and need special attention on health care. A predication made by World Health Organization (WHO) states that about 75% of the estimated 1.2 billion people aged above 60 years will reside in developing countries by 2025. The prevalence of psychiatric illness is increasing worldwide. We conducted a study on 60 geriatric patients to evaluate their clinical and socio–demographic profile and its correlation with the prognosis of patients. In present study, Insomnia was the most common symptom observed followed by inability to work and depressed mood. Most of the care takers were able to provide 4–8 hrs support and the care provided by other members was found psychological (53%).
