Preview is only available to registered and logged in users.

Episode Description:

Depression in an elderly person is often overlooked as a treatable medical problem and considered a normal part of growing older. Loss of loved ones, retirement, and health problems are things that cause sadness in older adults; however, if these feelings linger for an extended period of time and affect a person's quality of life, he or she may be suffering from depression. What might seem like normal behavior to the uninitiated is a cry for help. The good news is that clinical depression can often be conquered through medical treatment. In this episode, we are fortunate to have Michael Landers, a psychotherapist and partner at Concord Insight Partners located in Concord MA, discuss depression in seniors.
