Depression and anxiety affect people of all ages worldwide. People want to believe that senior citizens have more life experiences that make them better able to deal with stress and should handle things better, but in actuality, changes leave them more vulnerable to mental health struggles.
Often, these people live alone and find it easy to get caught up in negative thoughts that lead to some of the following symptoms:
- Social isolation
- Physical inactivity/limitations
- Poor nutrition/weight loss
- Increased irritability
- Heightened sense of fears
- Loneliness/not feeling needed or loved
- Fear of memory loss
- Feeling purposeless/hopeless
