Depression is often misdiagnosed or missed entirely in the elderly; people often think it's a "normal" response to the aging process. But this is not the case, and Serani offers a compassionate and practical guide to understanding, identifying, and treating depression for anyone suffering or who knows someone suffering with this common disorder.
