Diagnosing Depression in the Elderly
Loss is a part of aging - loss of relationships, health, a job, driving. At the same time, depression is not a normal part of aging. Dr. Weiss, a geriatric psychiatrist, will provide an overview of signs, symptoms and treatment of depression in older adults.
Ask the Geriatrician was developed to address the shortage of geriatricians available to meet with older adults and their caregivers in the United States. Geriatricians specialize in preventing and treating health issues in adults ages 65+, yet many people never have the opportunity to speak with one. This webcast provides the means to submit your questions to the presenter during the live and on demand presentations.
