Depressed Seniors Resort to Nursing Homes

According to scientist from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in Baltimore and George Washington University in Washington, D.C it is said that aged people// who are depressed resort to nursing homes. Depression among aged can be dangerous and sometimes result in death of the patient. Hence the researchers analyzed the relationship between depression and nursing home admission. They studied and surveyed a total of 141,000 seniors. About 13261 of those studied were found to suffer fro depression.

After a period of 12 months it was found that 13 % of them were living in nursing homes. It was later thought that depression could have resulted in illness and other changes in lifestyle which made the seniors to resort to nursing homes. Previous studies show that depression affects blood pressure and results in cardiovascular disease. Other studies prove that depressed people tend to take increased amounts of alcohol and poor diets. Dr. Yael Harris of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in Baltimore says that it is very important to look for signs of depression among the aged population.
