Geriatric Depression Scale
Name: Geriatric Depression Scale
Description: The Geriatric Depression Scale is a screening tool that was designed specifically for older adults with and without dementia. Questions focus on affective and behavioral symptoms of depression rather than symptoms confused with somatic diseases or dementia. Items are yes/no questions and they can be administered in a variety of formats, either as a paper and pencil self-report measure or orally in blind patients. Translations in multiple languages and further information is available at the website.
