Breakdown

The number of older people with mental health problems is estimated to increase by a third over the next 15 years to 4.3 million. Bereavement, stress and loneliness can contribute and some end up on the Maudsley Hospital’s Older Adults Ward.

We'll meet Peter who experiences very real hallucinations but is due to be discharged home and isn't sure how the transition to independence will play out. We'll also be on the heels of the Home Treatment team who are desperately trying to keep older people in their homes, but who have to make tough choices minute by minute which can have huge implications for their clients.
