Standing Up to Depression in Seniors [INFOGRAPHIC]

It is a common myth about depression that it only happens to younger people. In reality, seniors can and do suffer from depression at alarming rates, but because many people dismiss it as a young person’s disease, they can be slow to get help. Seniors may also be hesitant to get treated for depression because they are more likely to complain about the physical symptoms of the disease, like unexplained aches and pains, than about sadness and despair.
