How to treat depression and memory loss?

Hello Sir My mother is little bit depressed. She tales sometimes in recalling things. Her age is 66. We can say that 25% of time she forgets things, 75% of time she remains ok. She suffers from this problem when she sits alone for sometime. we had consulted MD(Medicines). He prescribed medicines Tab Cyanocal 2 twice a day and Tab Serlift 50 once a day. But her problem intensifies after taking these medicines. She is very week. She was suffering from typhoid two week before. Please suggest us something so that she can recover from this problem. Regards Asha
