Depression in later life is usually diagnosed on the basis of two clusters of symptoms: feelings and physical changes. In a 3-page paper, written in APA format using proper spelling/grammar, research the topic of depression in the elderly and address the following:
- How would one know if an elderly relative had clinical depression or was sad because of specific life changes and losses?
- What are the consequences of depression in the elderly?
- Which behaviors would indicate a person going through depression needs therapy?
- What kind of therapy would a professional recommend and why?
Be sure to include APA citations for any resources you used as references.
