Dear Carol: My mother is 93 years old and depressed. She has advanced macular degeneration, poor hearing and all-over arthritis pain, which can be debilitating. She has medication for heart and blood pressure, but she refuses to take her pills because they make her feel worse. I know that she’s got a lot of challenges and that she’s in pain, but when she says she’s done living, I don’t know what to say or do. I want to tell her that it will all get better, but obviously, it won’t. I’ve suggested that she see a doctor about an antidepressant. She says she doesn’t want to do that. How do I handle this? — SU
