Even though Mrs Browning assures you that her mood is good and she seems to have a positive outlook on life, to be safe, you perform a geriatric depression scale. She scores 1/15 indicating she is unlikely to be depressed (a score higher than 5 indicates depression).  There is no evidence of elevated mood during your history taking or your interview (occasionally bipolar disorder can present with altered sleep patterns).
