PMID:  3806427     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS) was used to screen for depression among residents of six nursing homes in Sydney. Of the 61% who could answer the questionnaire, more than one third were depressed. Those who were physically disabled, and those admitted in the previous 3 months scored higher on the GDS. Many of the severely demented patients could be tested with the GDS.
