  1. Dear sir,
    this may not be depression. many times in old age, a person does tend to retreat into themselves. also with increasing medical issues and hearing trouble, this becomes more common. I suggest you pls get her medical and hearing issues handled first and then if some symptoms remain, we can look into it. you may consult me privately for a detailed discussion if you may feel.
