Geriatric Depression

Seniors can become depressed as the years creep by with the passing of friends, loved ones, beloved pets, job retirement, illnesses and a myriad of other factors. Taking care to understand, recognize and counteract potential risk factors can be helpful.

The Baycrest Centre has launched a Geriatric Depression Scale test that provides a self-measuring tool although it is not a substitution for a diagnostic interview with a qualified mental health professional.
