The new book from Gordon Parker and his colleagues 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, exercises and attitude in receovery. 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 strssors which accumulate with age. There is also a high incidence of undiagnosed depression in older age, presenting extra channges for carers.
