Detection of Depression in Older Adults with Dementia


It is anticipated that the incidence and prevalence of Alzheimer disease and other forms of dementia will increase as our nation ages. It is therefore essential that depression and dementia, the two most frequent psychiatric syndromes in the older adult population, are assessed for routinely. However, depression in older adults with and without dementia often goes unrecognized and untreated. Despite expert recommendations and increased availability of a range of depression treatment options (e.g., medication, psychotherapy, combination therapy, and ECT), depression remains a significant public health problem for older adults. Detection is the first essential step to improving depression care for patients with dementia.


The purpose of this evidence-based guideline is to improve the detection of depression in older adults with dementia. This guideline may be used by physicians, advanced practice nurses, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and social workers across a variety of settings including inpatient and outpatient, long-term care, assisted living, and home care. Written 2007; Revised 2014.
