My Mum (aged 82) has been diagnosed with clinical depression. It seems to have developed fairly quickly although there were signs of anxiety for the few months leading up to it. She shows no care for her appearance (hasn't worn a bra in months, no make-up, not bothered about clothes etc...), has forgotten her important passwords, no interest in using phone or social media, eating and drinking have become an issue and she has lost 3.5 stone. Please can anyone help with advice/support? She is now on medication but we're awaiting any counselling on the NHS. My Dad (89) understandably finding it very hard. Thanks very much in advance!
