  1. Assessment Description

The FNP conducts a routine follow-up on a 74-year-old female patient with depression, who reports that she is feeling like she cannot go on anymore. The FNP learns that this patient discontinued her medication 3 weeks ago because she could not afford it. What should the FNP do in this situation? Support your response. Differentiate your response based on the patient’s age vs. a 25-year-old patient. What are the potential differences in presentation, risks, and treatment plan for clinical depression in a geriatric patient vs. a younger adult? Support your answer with two or three peer-reviewed resources.
