Copyrighted Material 16 Behavioral Neurology in the Elderly This does not mean that no reflection on aging might be found in the classic works of other representative authors. For example, well-known psychodynamic theorists such as Carl G. lung and Alfred Adler outlined drafts of the psychology of old age that are not without interest. lung (1875-1961), in a well-known paper on "The decline of life,"20 considered old age a period of life full of problems, as instincts have lost control of behavior, and imagination has given up, while the subject is confronted by the limitations of everyday reality.

But this rule is not applicable to old age because there is usually more than one diagnosis. The field of geriatrics espouses an interventionist approach in which patient care is interdisciplinary. Overall assessment and treatment programs are linked with individualized care plans and long-term disease management. Rather than focusing on a specific organ or system, geriatricians are concerned with the overall functional status of their patients. A geriatrician takes into account the patient's special characteristics and the conditions that intensify with age-related changes.
