The referral process Who refers

Whilst the referral process might be the same as for younger patients, it is more often different. In many cases the patient has no idea why, or indeed does not even know or has forgotten that she has been referred. (The feminine gender is used in this chapter because older women are more likely to develop a mental illness and to survive longer than men. However, what is written applies also to men.)

The process has most often been initiated by family members who might not have discussed it with the patient. Many old people live alone with no relatives nearby or even in the same country or state, so that referrals are frequently initiated by friends, neighbours, or other acquaintances, such as local shopkeepers, social services care workers, and people who run luncheon clubs.
