Product Description

Loneliness and isolation are a huge cause of depression and anxiety common amongst seniors. Social contact decreases as people age, often due to lack of mobility, retirement and other reasons leading to higher rates of senior social isolation. Loneliness is a huge risk factor for depression, heightening the sense of unhappiness and worthlessness. Therefore, it is important to look out for these symptoms and alleviate them ahead of time.  Depression in seniors can co-occur with other serious medical illnesses such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Dementia, Diabetes, Cancer, Heart Disease, and Parkinson’s Disease. Depression/Anxiety can make these conditions worse and some of these conditions can induce depressive and anxious episodes. Sometimes medications taken for these physical illnesses may cause side effects that contribute to depression. All these factors can cause depression to go undiagnosed or untreated in older people.  Diminished independence is a major risk factor in the onset of depression in seniors. A customized therapy-based program will provide beneficial techniques that will aid the senior in autonomy to be faced with the fact that they need assistance with taking medicine or getting dressed. The suggestion of assistance may seem intrusive and worrisome, leaving older adults feeling helpless, weak, and despondent. When followed at the recommended frequency, the individual will benefit, with an optimal achievement level of 100%.
