Elder Community Care (ECC) can help you!
- Sometimes we want to talk to someone about our fears;
- Stress may be preventing us from enjoying things we like to do;
- We may experience grief over the loss of a loved one;
- We may find ourselves over-using alcohol, drugs or medications;
- Caring for a loved one or a spouse is overwhelming; or
- We may experience loneliness and isolation
Elder Community Care can help you with your concerns and worries. ECC's team
is made up of trained social workers and mental health clinicians that work specifically with people over the age of 60.

- According to the National Institutes of Health, of the 35 million Americans
aged 65 years or older, about two million people have depression. Another
five suffer from less severe forms of the illness.
- Clinical depression is different from "the blues" or occasional sadness.
- Depression is a treatable disease with specific symptoms.
- If you have access to a computer, you can take a screening to find out if you may have depression. It is available on the web at Depression Screening
