Ways to help the elderly suffering from depression
About six million Americans age 65 and older experience symptoms of depression. Though common among the elderly, depression is not a normal part of aging. Many seniors may not recognize the signs, such as loss of interest in socializing and hobbies, sadness and despair, sleep problems and neglecting personal care. Various medical conditions such as thyroid disorder and heart disease can also cause depression directly or as a reaction to the illness.
