Those three are not isolated cases and are not ones who have Alzheimer’s disease. In the dozen years or so we have been in the business of caring for the elderly almost all of those we end up taking care of have depression and all who do take one of the strong drugs available for depression and never get off of them. Try to avoid that scenario if at all possible. Ayurveda treatment for depression may be your solution if you have depression problems.
