Old age is the  later part of human life. So care should be taken both physically and psychologically.  They may have different and special physical, mental and behavioral needs. Mental health disorders including depression and anxiety are affecting an elderly’s ability to perform various physical tasks.

Depression is, unfortunately, a common occurrence among older adults. The fact that their activities and social interactions are more limited, and their nearest and dearest are often living far away, makes the adjustment to old age harder.

Thus, most elderly face problems with self-perception and self-concept. The emotional needs of elderly differ in their final stages of life. Many older adults worry about their loss of dignity or loss of control as their physical abilities deteriorate.  It is common for them to feel fearful of becoming a burden to loved ones.

Most older adults also have problems with cognitive function and speech perception as the years pass by. Addressing these problems is important to alleviate emotional suffering and improve physical and mental health and promote a better quality of life.

Depression

Occasionally being sad or feeling hopeless is a part of every child’s life. However, some children feel sad or uninterested in things that they used to enjoy, or feel helpless or hopeless in situations they are not able to change.

When children feel persistent sadness and hopelessness, they may be diagnosed with depression. Some children may not talk about their helpless and hopeless thoughts, and may not appear sad.

Depression might also cause a child to make trouble or act unmotivated, causing others not to notice that the child is depressed or to incorrectly label the child as a trouble-maker or lazy.

The first step to treatment is to talk with a healthcare provider or a Clinical psychologist about getting an evaluation.
