Safety and improving the quality of life is our priority. Our depression support services offer specialized services for the unique needs of our clients in following areas:

In older adults, the combination of memory loss, disability and other medical and surgical problems contributes to worsening of physical and mental health. Amid the other illnesses, depression may go undetected and is likely to be under-treated. The prevalence of depression in older adults is exceptionally high in home healthcare, with 1 in 7 older patients with major depression and 1 in 3 with clinically significant depression (Bruce et al., 2002; Knight &Houseman, 2008). Research found that depression in older adults is also associated with adverse events like falls and hospitalization (Byers et al., 2008; Sheeran et al., 2004; Sheeran et al., 2010). With growing evidence, geriatric depression has gained increased attention in home care. Early detection, symptom management, compliance with medications and home care support are very crucial to depression care.
