Description of this Book

This is a most important book on a very serious and common condition - depression. The accounts are moving, and there are excellent explanations and suggested treatments.' - Professor Lewis Wolpert CBE, author of Malignant Sadness'This timely book authored by an array of experts in the field highlights the special risk factors and responses that operate later in life. It is a welcome contribution to building a 21st century approach to mental health care.' - Professor Patrick McGorry AO, clinical academic, University of MelbourneEven when he's grey around the muzzle, the black dog of depression can still deliver a ferocious bite.Depression can strike at any age, and it may appear for the first time as we get older, as a result of life circumstances or our genetic makeup. While older people face the same kinds of mental health issues as younger people, they can find it more difficult to deal with them owing to the stressors which accumulate with age. There is also a high incidence of undiagnosed depression in older age, presenting extra challenges for carers. Managing Depression Growing Older offers a systematic guide to identifying depression in older people, supporting them at home or in an aged care setting, and the importance of diet, exercise and attitude in recovery. It is essential reading for anyone who works with the elderly.
