Care for Seniors With Depression

Jun 30, 2017 by Samantha Pfeifer

Care for seniors is important and effective, especially for those seniors who suffer from depression and feelings of loneliness. Caregivers who provide in home services to seniors can meet a great deal of the physical and emotional needs of the individual and provide them with the love, care, and compassion that they need. The caregivers at Comfort Keepers in Waite Park are committed to monitoring your loved one and writing down any symptoms of depression and transporting your loved one to and from his or her doctor’s appointments.

Seniors are one of the groups that often suffer from a missed chance to diagnose depression due to the hidden symptoms. Depression is often overlooked in seniors and adults who are aged 65 and older. It is important to never turn a cheek when you think your parent may have depression because it can lead to suicide in severe cases.

Depression can be effectively managed when it is diagnosed and our team is able to provide the best care for seniors in their home. Whether your parent is experiencing feelings from a loss or they are suffering from a chemical imbalance due to new medication, our team will be there to help and provide emotional support.

One of the ways that our caregivers will help your loved one effectively manage their depression is through enrichment activities. Our team will work with you to determine activities that your parent would and can participate in such as a trip to the aquarium, park, or any other landmark of interest.

Our care for seniors extends beyond just helping with the personal care services and we will build a friendly and lasting relationship with your parent to ensure they live a life that is full of happiness.
