Crane Library Web Pick of the Week: Late-life Depression

Toronto-based, Baycrest Health Sciences is a leader in providing high quality care in geriatric residential living and related research and education. One way they provide education to those beyond their facility and its surrounding areas is by maintaining an informative website with resources for health care providers and family caregivers on how to best care for and interact with the elderly living in long-term care.

Baycrest describes late-life depression on their website through a combination of video clips, written content and a depression self-check tool which employs the valid and reliable Geriatric Depression Scale to assess depression in older adults.
