Depression is common among older adults who no longer can care for themselves; and both self-neglect and depression are associated with poor health outcomes, including increased mortality. This webinar will explore some of the potential health and behavioral correlates of depression in older adults who neglect themselves. In addition, the webinar will cover implications for further research and the development of programs to address depression in this population. Part of a series on APS research to practice, this webinar is sponsored by the joint research committee of the National Adult Protective Services Association and the National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse, with support from NCCD.
