My Mom is a sweet, remarkably tough, woman who in the last year has lost most of her eye sight, ability to walk, developed AFIB, has CLL, and other debilitating health issues. She is sad! My sister who co-caretakes with me talked w her GP who put her on Prozac. I believe that she has the right to be sad/depressed and allowed to process losses. I don't understand why our elderly are expected to be upbeat etc. And believe it is so our job as caretaker will be easier. I know, if I were in "her shoes" I would be depressed. I my trying to wrap my head around mom taking one more drug, and not be profoundly angry w my sister.
