It is predicted that there will be a significant growth in the population aged over 65 years in the U.K., from 15.9% in 2000 to 23.3% in 2050, with the fastest growth rate being among the oldest old (United Nations, 2005). In line with such growth, there will be a commensurate increase in the population of older people suffering from psychiatric conditions. This will lead to a demand for increased health care services and the need for reorganization and prioritization of resources channeled into health care for this group.
