Objectives: To explore the multiple factors of neuropsychology in elderly patients with depression. Methods: 64 elderly patients with depression were selected as individuals. The Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS), neuropsychological scale score, and family support scale were used to analyze multiple factors of neuropsychology in elderly patients with depression. Results: Through GDS, neuropsychological scale, and family support scale, we can see that there is cognitive impairment in elderly patients with depression. It is closely related to the following three factors: the economic capacity of the family, their health status, and family support level. These factors play an important role in the depression of the elderly and are the main causes of depression in the elderly. Conclusions: There are many neuropsychological factors affecting depression in the elderly. In the prevention of the occurrence of depression in the elderly, the prevention of physical diseases should be done in time, and the harmonious family relationship should be maintained. At the same time, the economic situation of elderly families should be improved.
