The Lets Respect Project was set up to support mental healthcare for older adults in the general hospital setting. In the general hospital setting delirium, depression and dementia in older adults can play a significant role in morbidity. The team have produced this video (see here) on their YouTube channel. At just under 7 minutes, it’s a useful video which explains each of the above succinctly and gives some simple practical pointers to management. A lot of effort has been put in to this to ensure the music, photography and text complement each other and send a clear message. The Lets Respect website is found within the Mental Health Policy Development Unit website here and has a number of other helpful resources (e.g see review here).
