May is Mental Health Awareness Month

May 08, 2023

Older adults’ mental health significantly affects their overall well-being and quality of life. Maintaining good mental health enables older adults to cope with daily challenges, maintain positive relationships and enjoy their later years. On the other hand, neglecting mental health can lead to a range of issues, such as depression, anxiety, cognitive decline, and decreased physical function.
