Seniors Facing Mental Health Issues

Mental health care for seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia in Fort Worth is an important part of their overall treatment plan. Mental health issues and memory loss often go hand-in-hand, each exacerbating the other. This video explains more.

Seniors have a high risk of depression, thanks to isolation, health problems, and medications, and they are often undertreated. Likewise, memory loss can trigger symptoms of depression. Studies have linked depression and dementia in seniors, which is one reason why mental health care is so crucial.
