As acaregiver to a senior citizen with depression, it can be difficult to find whatis in their best interest at times. Lincoln home care has shown that keepingan elderly person with depression occupied can be the best form of treatment.An elderly person has gone through many life changes as they've reached theirgolden years. Having a busy home and career has kept them occupied for theirentire adult lives. Caring for children, planning vacations, and going to workhas kept their mind working and active, but now that their lives have sloweddown, they may not know how to adapt properly.

Lincoln Home Health Care states that it isimportant to stimulate the minds of elderly people in order to keep them assharp as possible. Outdoor activities that involve animals are a great way tobrighten the mood and sharpen the mind of the elderly. Lincoln Elder Care hasshown that giving an elderly person the responsibility of walking a dog willgive them exercise as well as mental satisfaction. Being able to care for a dogor cat can make their day much brighter and make them feel better aboutthemselves.

If you are the primary caregiver for a senior citizen coping with depression,it is important that any prescription medication be supervised. An elderly personwith any form of mental illness can sometimes forget to take doses of theirmedication or not take it at all. This only compounds the problem. Allprescription medication must be taken at the correct times and in the correctdosages to make sure that the person is getting the best possible treatment.Routine evaluations with the elderly person's doctor should be scheduled.Physical conditions in the elderly can change quickly, so any prescriptionmedication must be monitored closely. A dosage that was good a year ago may notbe best suited down the road. A careful monitoring of the after effects of themedications should be done.

As a Lincoln Care Giver to the elderly, it isvery important to give them the best care and keep them in the best health. Monitoringdepression in the elderly can be a daunting task, but by taking the right stepslisted above the task can be accomplished.
