Ten thousand people are expected to turn 65 every day over the next 15 years. This growing population of elderly is increasing the demand for many health care services and shifting much of the cost to Medicare.  Unique among these services is Psychiatric care – mental health disorders frequently occur in tandem with several chronic illnesses such as diabetes, cardiac conditions and arthritis.
