In recent years there have been significant developments in psychiatry for the elderly in the Netherlands. Epidemiological research has widened its scope, collaborating with other disciplines and thereby creating a range of new perspectives. Patient care is shifting gradually to the general hospital and psychiatry for the elderly has a definite place in the curriculum for trainee psychiatrists. Increasingly, integrated care arrangements are becoming available for elderly psychiatric patients with handicaps. Psychiatry for the elderly has obtained a firm foothold in the Netherlands and should be able to participate in and benefit from the developments that are expected in the years to come.
