Program Overview
Millions of elderly Americans are affected by depression. Symptoms are often displayed differently, or even mistaken for aging, so depression in the elderly can be hard to diagnose. Studies show depression tends to last longer in elderly adults, often times doubling their risk of cardiac disease and death from illness. Discover how you can make a difference – help someone’s later years be truly golden.
