Mental illness in the later years is another challenge that many elderly persons face. These can include schizophrenia, Alzheimer's, disability, bipolar, PTSD, and more. It is estimated that over 20% of seniors have some form of neurological disorder, with Alzheimer’s and depression being the most common. Because it is often difficult for seniors to express their concerns about both physical and mental health, it is especially important that caretakers are aware of the signs and symptoms. When these are recognized, family members or other advocates, such as the elder care case managers of Castle Rock Services, can help seek medical help, counselling services, and other additional resources, including daily geriatric care management, for the elderly. Call us at (208) 409-4857 for more information about your specific situation.

Elderly and Mental Health

Mental health issues are oftentimes a normal part of aging, but seniors are less likely to recognize the need for mental health care and seek or receive mental health care or counseling. The quality of life of any person can be greatly affected by mental illness, but it can be especially devastating for seniors who are isolated, lonely, and unable to perform routine tasks.

The following are some of the most common signs of mental illness in the elderly and should be addressed if noticed:
  • stress
  • anxiety
  • feeling down or hopeless
  • irritability or moodiness
  • trouble sleeping
  • excessive fear
  • fatigue
  • feelings of worthlessness
  • avoiding family and friends
  • weight gain or loss
