Depression symptoms in older adults


Depression is not a normal part of growing older, and it should never be taken lightly. Unfortunately, Depression often goes undiagnosed and untreated in older adults, and they may feel reluctant to seek help. Symptoms of Depression may be different or less obvious in older adults, such as:

Memory difficulties or personality changes
Physical aches or pain
Fatigue, loss of appetite, sleep problems or loss of interest in sex — not caused by a medical condition or medication
Often wanting to stay at home, rather than going out to socialize or doing new things
Suicidal thinking or feelings, especially in older men
