Depression
Depression may be described as feeling sad, blue, unhappy, miserable, or down in the dumps. Most of us feel this way at one time or another for short periods. True clinical depression is a mood disorder in which feelings of sadness, loss, anger, or frustration interfere with everyday life for weeks or longer.
Many of the changes we face as we grow older, such as retirement, the death of friends and loved ones, increased isolation, or medical problems, can lead to depression. Left untreated, depression affects much more than just mood. It can impact your physical health, impair your memory and concentration, and prevent you from enjoying life.
However, depression is not a normal or necessary part of aging, and there are many steps you can take to overcome the symptoms, regardless of your age or the challenges you face. Your brain continues to change throughout life, so itís never too late to make positive changes and experience the joy of your golden years. Unified Care Services is committed to providing a supportive and outstanding client experience where you wonít feel alone, because we will be there for you.
