Signs of Geriatric Depression

The following symptoms may be signs of clinical depression when experienced for at least two weeks:

  • Feeling sad or irritable throughout the day
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in activities once enjoyed
  • Changes in weight or appetite
  • Changes in normal sleep patterns
  • Fatigue or loss of energy
  • Feeling worthless, hopeless or unreasonably guilty
  • Inability to concentrate, remember things or make decisions
  • Restlessness or decreased activity
  • Complaints of physical aches and pains for which no medical causes can be found

If you or someone you know is experiencing these symptoms, call us. We also strongly recommend scheduling an exam with a physician to rule out other illnesses that may be causing the symptoms.
