    Resumen

    The goal of this article is to identify the relationship between the state of the cognitive processes and the level of depression in elder women at the San Antonio elderly home in Bucaramanga city. In this study, information was collected by means of the application of two instruments (Mini-mental and Beck's geriatric scale of depression) and an in-depth interview with a non-probabilistic sample of 67 elder women from the population studied. Correlational elements of detriment and depression with significant events of the life cycle were found. This research is based on the necessity of finding out the actual conditions of the elder women with regards to the two variables and their correlation, in order to improve the population's mental and emotional health, beginning with actions started by the professionals who assist the elder women. The results suggest that there is a correlation between the detriment of cognitive processes and the presence of depression.
