Depression is an often-overlooked health complication for the elderly, but the statistics reveal just how serious this risk is. A whopping 15 in 100 people over age 65 are living with depression, but only 10% actually seek help. For seniors and their loved ones, it’s crucial to recognize the signs of depression and to take action when they appear. Home health care services can play an important role in helping seniors with depression overcome the symptoms and re-engage socially. Jenkintown Comfort Keepers is focused on quality senior care, so we designed this infographic to educate the elderly and their families about depression and how services like home care can help. Please help us spread the word about this important senior care issue by sharing this information with your family and friends.
