Arterial hypertension (AH) is one of the most common human diseases, which has acquired the character of a pandemic. Epidemiological studies conducted in different regions of Russia, CIS and Europe over the last 20 years indicate that hypertension occurs in approximately 30-40% of the adult population. One of the aspects of the course of hypertension in the elderly is the rapid development of vascular lesions of the brain with the formation of depressive reactions, significantly reducing the quality of life of the elderly.

Together, this led to the improvement of the quality of life of elderly patients with arterial hypertension.
