Elder Care in Washington, IA
Washington's Preferred Elder Care Provider
There over two million senior citizens in America that suffer from depression. Sadly, many of the warning signs of depression are often overlooked and not properly diagnosed. As our elderly loved ones enter the twilight years of their life, it’s a very sad fact that many quietly suffer from this mentally debilitating disease without their family truly knowing or understanding the symptoms. If you have a loved one that may be suffering from depression, elder care may be the right resolution.
