Yes, geriatric ladies and men can suffer from depression and anxiety. It can be very difficulty watching your peers have dramatic declines in functioning and attending funerals of your peers. Many find it quite depressing as they gradually lose their physical and mental abilities. Medicare covers mental health services so no reason to just suffer.

Seriously, the variation is not so much age as it is the underlying resiliency. We are all individuals, avoid grouping.
