dc.description.abstractIn summary, the graying of America is anticipated to dramatically increase the incidence and prevalence of depression in this country. This is due, in part, to the burgeoning aging population of baby-boomers. Baby-boomers are predicted to experience depression at higher rates than prior generations. More beds in long-term care facilities will be required to meet the demands of increased numbers of elders who will need nursing care at some point during their older years. Many of these patients will be admitted for depression, and many others will be depressed upon their relocation to the residential setting. Long-term care staff will need satisfactory knowledge of late-life depression in order to accurately assess and treat their elder patients. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to assess knowledge of depression among staff in long-term care facilities.en
