Recognise the signs
As we get older, the difficult changes that many face - such as the death of a spouse or medical problems - can lead to depression, especially in those without a strong support system. But depression is not a normal or necessary part of ageing. In fact, most older people are satisfied with their lives despite the challenges of growing old.
Left alone, depression not only prevents older adults from enjoying life as they should, it also takes a heavy toll on health. But if you learn how to spot the signs of depression and find effective ways to help, you or your loved ones can remain happy and vibrant throughout the golden years.
