Chapter 9 discusses how late-life depression increases the disability associated with medical comorbidity, worsens the perception of pain intensity, increases caregiver burden and is the greater risk factor for suicide, and reviews the evidence base for effective somatic treatments for late life depression, with emphasis on managing the high recurrence rates, as well as the subtypes of depression, including treatment resistant depression (TRD), vascular depression, Bipolar disorder, depression with psychosis, and depression comorbid with cognitive impairment.
