Description

Simei: Depression in the Elderly - Aug 25 (Sat)

What are the signs of elderly depression and what are the treatments available? Being "down", isolated, and even having physical complaints may not be "just part of ageing". Depression in the elderly is often missed or misdiagnosed. There is a need for a greater awareness of the symptoms of depression in order to detect and diagnose it early as there are effective treatments available. Come and learn how we can age healthily not only physically but also mentally with Dr Ng Li-Ling of Changi General Hospital.


Speaker: Dr Ng Li-Ling, Psychiatrist, Changi General Hospital
Dr Ng Li-Ling is a Senior Consultant Psychiatrist currently practising at the Department of Psychological Medicine, Changi General Hospital, Singapore. She received specialist training in the field of Psychogeriatrics in the United Kingdom in 1991. Since 1993, she has been the Vice-President of the Singapore Alzheimer’s Disease Association
