As the number of homebound adults increases, depression among this population is doubling to tripling. This study found significant correlation between loneliness and depression. Loneliness was correlated to limited visitors and decreased meaningful activities. OTs can impact this population through using the occupational profile to determine ways to increase meaningfulness in activities or serve as advisors to local agencies to determine ways to decrease loneliness and social isolation.
