COMMON SIGNS OF DEPRESSION IN SENIORS

These are some common symptoms of depression in older adults:

  • loss of energy
  • decreased interest and pleasure in usual activities
  • pain and somatic complaints
  • complaints of memory problems

Counselling or psychotherapy (talking one-on-one with a psychologist) can be of great help in treatment of depression. Our compassionate and knowledgeable psychologists can help.

Diagnostic Testing for Older Adults

Our licensed neuropsychologists provide neurocognitive assessment for conditions seen in older adults, including depression, anxiety, dementia (like Alzheimer’s, for example), stroke, and traumatic brain injury.

These assessments are useful for identifying cognitive changes in older adults, such as:

  • memory slips
  • word finding problems
  • difficulty making decisions
  • personality and mood changes

These assessments are often done in one of our three office locations, but may be done in the person’s home if mobility is a barrier.
