Depression tied to dementia later in life

People who are depressed late in life face an increased risk for dementia.

A new study out of the University of Amsterdam looked at more than 2,000 Medicare recipients.

They found people who were depressed had an increased risk for mild cognitive impairment and dementia.

Patients who were depressed and experiencing memory problems at the start of the study were more likely to develop dementia.
