Abstract

The overall objective of this correlational descriptive study was to explore the effects of depression and adaptation among elderly widows and widowers. A total of thirty-four male and female elderly persons participated in this study. Simple descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data. The findings of this study accepted the hypothesis that there is no significant statistical difference between elderly widows and widowers and the effects of depression and adaptation.
