Depression - Older Adults

People suffering from depression experience a common mental disorder that effects their overall thoughts, behaviour and feelings. They may feel a range of emotions, including sadness, anxiety, and hopelessness. Depression can occur at any age, and is different from occasionally feeling simply down or sad. Older adults can experience depression due to many factors, including chronic medical illness, poor sleep, or loneliness/social isolation. They often lose interest in activities they once enjoyed, start over-eating or have a loss of appetite, experience turmoil in family, friend, and romantic relationships, experience fatigue, insomnia, and in severe cases, may have suicidal thoughts or attempt to commit suicide. If you feel you would like more information, community resources, or professional help answer questions or face challenges brought on by depression, for either yourself or an older adult family member, we are here to provide you with the resources you need. If you are in need of urgent, or emergency sources of support and information to help manage depression, Kinjunxion is here to help.
