Depression among elderly people

Depression among elderly people is a much neglected health issue. Now a new survey conducted by researchers at the London School of Economics has brought to light a surprising solution to this problem, by showing that parents who live with their grown-up children are less prone to unhappiness. When adult kids move back home, whether it’s because they cant’ find a job or afford to buy or rent their own home, levels of depression among their parents tend to drop significantly, probably because of reduced loneliness and social isolation.
