Summary
"This book provides information about schizophrenia in late life, comparing features of older patients with schizophrenia while with younger patients. Differences in symptoms, cognitive impairments, functional status, and quality of life might be expected when comparing older and younger patients because of the lifetime nature of the illness and the fact that the illness itself affects many aspects of functioning that are influenced by aging. What is clear is that schizophrenia in late life shares many of the features of schizophrenia in the earlier years, but also has a number of additional features and complications relating to aging and the lifetime history of social and economic disadvantage conferred by the experience of the illness. We examine all of the questions raised and features of illness described in this introductory chapter, reviewing the available data from both comparisons of older and younger patients and longitudinal studies of older patients. We use these data to develop an understanding of how schizophrenia changes over time within individuals. We try to identify predictors of these changes and the treatments, current and future, that need to be applied to schizophrenia as patients age. By the end of this book, the entirety of the current research literature on schizophrenia and aging is reviewed and synthesized into an integrated perspective"--Introd.
