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.
