TOPIC – Depression
INFO – Depression can manifest as sadness, insomnia, loss of appetite, lack of energy, difficulty concentrating, and not being able to enjoy oneself. Depression is common in all age groups including older adults, who do experience hardships, but is not a “normal part of aging.” We will discuss how to recognize depression and what the effective treatments are, starting with non-medicinal lifestyle changes (such as staying busy and involved, and being active, eating and sleeping well), and including other methods of treatment, including therapy and, when necessary, medications.
