Results: Overall, 15 journals were conducted in older population with depression symptoms or diagnosed in the age range ≥ 65 years. This review reveals that cognitive behavior therapy, music therapy and activity therapy, potentially decrease the depression and anxiety levels in elderly compared with general therapy (psychopharmaceutical and routine consultation). Conclusions: These interventions which are used in this review have effective result and cost-effective without causing excessive physical and psychological stress. In order to maintain long-term effect, the health practitioner should be active to promote these non-invasive interventions in every level of health care services.
