Do you know what else is making the elderly depressed? The giant eye sore of a parking garage that was just built across the street from the retirement home by the Trafalgar GO. The lights are so bright that they light up the residents rooms even when the curtains are drawn. Rob Burton is aware and has done NOTHING.

If seniors lose the will the live fine. But don't drag everyone else down with their 'depression'. If they want an appointment with dr jack give it to them.

Other wise you literally tell them shape up or ship out-permanently. But Geriatric Medicine regularly which FAILS the senior community continues to do so well into old age by just prescribing more chemicals to the point where they are gooey jello like experiment. They become an unwinnable balancing act of interacting chemicals and associated conditions.

Prescribing a simple fitness and nutrition which includes daily walking and vitamins is beyond the scope and range of the ability of most docTORs who practice geriatric medicine.

SHAPE UP OR SHIP OUT and that includes you alleged docTORs.
