Depression and Seniors

Feeling sad every once in a while is a normal part of life, but if these feelings last a few weeks or months, you may be experiencing depression. Depression is a common problem among seniors, and during this pandemic the social isolation alone can cause depression. Everyone needs social connections to survive and thrive. But as people age, they often find themselves spending more time alone.

For some seniors with depression, sadness is not their main symptom. They could instead be feeling more of a numbness or a lack of interest in activities. They may not be as willing to talk about their feelings. For more information about depression types, symptoms, and risks, click here.

We want to encourage you to keep moving and continue your fitness, wellness and wholeness journey.

Before you start any exercise program, always check with your doctor for clearance. Join us and start your Saturday feeling good. Your body will thank you!
