File Category: Instructional Guide

This is a PDF of the Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS). The Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS) is a test given to older adults to screen for depression. The Short Form of GDS has 15 questions which are used for screening. Answers indicating depression are in bold and italicized; score one point for each one selected. A score of 0 to 5 is normal. A score greater than 5 suggests depression. Be aware that the geriatric depression scale is not definitive for diagnosis of depression; it is simply a screen tool that, if positive, requires further evaluation from a mental health specialist.
