Anxiety Disorders in Late Life.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Anxiety disorders in later life are some of the most significant mental health problems affecting older adults. Prevalence estimates of anxiety disorders in late life vary considerably based on multiple methodological issues. Current diagnostic criteria may not adequately capture the nature and experience of anxiety in older people, particularly those in ethnic and racial minority groups. This article reviews late-life anxiety disorders. Pharmacologic and psychotherapy approaches to treat late-life anxiety are reviewed, including a summary of current innovations in clinical care across settings, treatment models, and treatment delivery.
