If you’re dealing with retirement depression, remember that you’re not alone!
According to a recent study, 25% of seniors 65 and older are suffering from mental health issues. And the sad news is that a lot of them are actually considering suicide as an option! It’s true that a lot of retirees are going through major changes (especially in the past three years) that can make them more vulnerable to this awful disease. That’s why it’s important to know what to do to help them!
For example, many seniors who are widowed or live alone because their families have relocated to other cities are facing the feeling of emptiness and sadness more often than others. To be honest, it’s heartbreaking to see elders struggling with depression because retirement is supposed to be the best period of our lives not the saddest one.
If you have an elder in your family that’s been moody or sad more often than they should, ask them if they need help. Sometimes people don’t want to ask for help because they don’t want to be a burden for others. In this article, we will show you some ways on how to overcome depression during retirement years, whether you’re preparing for it or you’re already retired.
