About This Topic
Geriatric depression is a mental and emotional disorder affecting older adults. Feelings of sadness and occasional “blue” moods are normal. Depression in older adults can reduce quality of life, and it increases risk of suicide. However, social support plays an important role in prevention and treating depression.
Articles of any genre concerning the importance of social support in preventing and treating depression in the context of successful aging, obesity, chronic pain and chronic disease would be in order."
