Depression in Elders may mimic dementia, or signal the beginning of another illness. It can shine light on the need to heal old wounds in the final stage of life.

 

Family members who provide care for an Elder may be at significantly greater risk for depression than their peers.

 

This coming Friday, (11/9), join me for “When Elder Care Hurts: How to Listen when Depression Symptoms are Speaking.”

 

This workshop will provide an overview of this poorly understood collection of symptoms, offer suggestions about how to respond to concerns about possible depression, and explore ways to reduce suffering and increase resilience.

 

The workshop is part of the 25th Annual Conference on Depression; this year’s theme is “Depression in Everyday Life.”

 

Speakers, panels, and workshops will explore topics such as living with depression symptoms in the workplace, at home, and in relationships.

 

The event is free and open to all members of the community.
