Depression affects more than 6.5 million Americans age 65 or older. Depression in elderly people often goes untreated, because many people think that depression is part of normal aging due to illness, decline in functioning and loss. In addition, many elderly people and their families do not recognize symptoms of depression. Depression is a medical illness, and the good news is that it is treatable. Join Dr. Christi Weston, medical director of Capital Health - Behavioral Health Specialists, to learn about the symptoms of depression, treatment options and prevention strategies.
