Abstract

The article presents results of studies of the anxiety and depression characteristics in elderly migrants of the Far North suffering from arterial hypertension in the period of their readaptation to new climatic conditions taking into account the length of their experience in the North, gender, age, and time of rehabilitation. A high occurrence of disturbing-depressive symptoms was found in the examined Far North migrants, the frequency and severity of which increase with age; female migrants are prone to depression 1.8 times and to anxiety 3.2 times more often than men. With increased length of stay in the new climate and new geographical conditions, the severity and frequency of occurrence of anxiety and depression increase. The results can be included into consideration when constructing a rehabilitation program and forecasting its efficiency, as well as in conducting psychotherapy and psychological prevention in this group of patients.
