Depression. A depressed and anxious-looking elderly woman rests her head on her hands as her partner looks on. Most people experience symptoms of mild depression, such as excessive sadness or despair, at some point in life. It is common in the elderly who might be mourning the death of a spouse, who might feel socially isolated, or may be physically ill and in pain. More women suffer from depression than men.
