Living in a delusion during the late stages of life is a danger to the well-being of the elderly. This illusion does not only refer to living in isolation; even elderly individuals who are surrounded by family can experience delusion if they feel forgotten, restricted in their living conditions, or disappointed with life.

In contemporary society, where individualism is on the rise and younger generations often have burdens that leave little time for the elderly, seniors tend to feel more deluded and isolated than before. This leads to genuine distress and cognitive turmoil, ultimately increasing the risk of depression.

Research conducted by various universities has found that the rate of suicide among elderly individuals suffering from depression is higher compared to patients in other age groups. Moreover, this trend is more pronounced in women than men. As age increases, the risk of depression rises even more significantly.

Signs indicating depression in the elderly include decreased appetite, poor sleep, easy fatigue, frequent feelings of boredom, lack of self-confidence, feelings of worthlessness, negative worldview, and often irritability and aggression.

To prevent depression in the elderly, family members must strengthen their relationships and show genuine care. Activities that reduce distance, support for small hobbies, and constant inquiries about their health are important steps.

Furthermore, taking care of the elderly, such as using BRE Shower Sheet for regular body cleansing, is a way to show them that they are cared for. This can be seen as one method to break down the walls of illusion that exist in their hearts.
