Late Life Disorders/Geriatric

Geriatric and Late Life DisordersOlder people can suffer from a variety of psychiatric disorders, including clinical depression. Clinical depression in seniors can lead to disability and increased mortality. Late-life depression is treatable, and those who recover from depression have improved physical and social functioning. Unfortunately, many older people with clinical depression do not receive adequate treatment. Memory disorders are also common among older people, who can benefit from careful evaluation and early treatment.
