Experiencing some sadness over life situations is normal; however, when that sadness persists and becomes long-term in nature or begins to disrupt your daily functioning, it is time to consider whether you have depression. Depression is not a natural part of aging and should not be considered something that has to be part of your life. Depression that is undiagnosed and untreated in the elderly can lead to a loss of independence, exacerbate symptoms of other illnesses, lead to the loss of will to live and even result in suicide. However, when properly diagnosed and treated, the client can recover fully.
