Heritage Sierra Senior Depression Medications

Heritage Sierra Senior Depression Medications

Welcome to Home Care This Week. This post is about the large and growing problem of depression in our senior population. People do not often think of seniors when it comes to depression but if they are a caregiver assisting someone in their home they need to be aware of this issue.

Among the many things that are confusing about health and healthcare, medications are a significant one. Treatment of depression can add to this confusion along with other medications for seniors and their conditions.

I had a chance to talk to Dr. Paula Bailey Walton of the Heritage Sierra Medical Group and we talked about depression and medication so there is some understanding for people caring for a loved one at home.
