Depression Training

Depression Training

The Retirement Research Foundation The Gerontology Center created six training modules on depression sponsored by The Retirement Research Foundation. The idea behind the project is quite simple. Research shows that seniors who are homebound following an illness or injury are at elevated risk of developing depressive symptoms, which in turn, can negatively impact the course of rehabilitation. The goal of this project was to develop a comprehensive training program to educate home health professionals about mood disorders in older adults, who are recovering from physical illness. For more information or to purchase the training modules, please contact the Gerontology Center at geron@uccs.edu or by calling us at 719-255-8005.
