Did you know... Many people don't tell their doctors what alternative therapies they're using, but it is important to do so. Some herbs can cause serious side effects when mixed with prescription and over-the-counter drugs such as aspirin, blood thinners or blood pressure medications. Older adults may metabolize medications differently so safe doses may not be established.

Patient Info

Depression is NOT a normal part of aging.

Depression in older adults is under-diagnosed. It is an illness that often goes unreported. Many times older adults have physical challenges which mask underlying depression. Depression can co-exist with other mental or physical illness, including dementia and drinking. The stigma attached to depression may keep those afflicted from asking for help. Often family members notice the change and can encourage a senior to see a professional.

Depression is a TREATABLE illness.
