THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DEPRESSION AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AMONG THE ELDERLY Depression and lack of activity among the elderly are major causes of health problems. Although men are considered to be more active than women, depression affects both. This has led to rapid increase in depressive symptoms reported. Depression has been reported as the major cause of mild cognitive impairment, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease. Loss or reduction of cognitive functioning in older adults has been a big problem with serious consequences on family, society, and the person. This study will focus on how physical activities done by elderly have an impact on depression levels. This will help in coming up with solutions to help the elderly have a healthy living instead of succumbing to severe illnesses. This study should also have a broad look on the relationship between depression and death rates among the elderly as well as the impact of certain foods on the health of the elderly.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
