It is not uncommon for Senior Adults to experience life changes that lead to feelings of depression, sadness and anger.
Often times the loss of independence, safety concerns, loss of a loved one or other physical illnesses can be overwhelming. Did you know the risk for depression in senior adults is 4X greater than for the general population? Mental Health Disorders affect at least 20% of individuals age 55 or older. Often times Depression and other mental health disorders go undiagnosed and untreated due in part to the presence of other complicating medical complaints.
