Anxiety and Depression in the Elderly

6 CPD Hours


Do you have an adequate understanding about how anxiety and depression affect the elderly?

This engaging seminar will provide you with a deep understanding of anxiety and depression in the elderly, including how to diagnose and manage these conditions.

Anxiety and depression are serious conditions that can be ongoing and it is estimated that 10 per cent of Australians over the age of 65 experience anxiety and/or depression.

As a care worker it is critically important to be able to identify, understand and manage anxiety and depression in a client’s daily care plan.

Topics covered include:

  • Identifying the signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression;
  • Utilising assessment tools and Evidence Based Practice;
  • Managing anxiety and depression in the elderly;
  • Care planning; and
  • Validating ACFI claims around anxiety and depression.
