Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Participation is a primary focus of OT and neurorehabilitation; however, there is a gap in understanding the association of depression and aging with participation. Therefore, this study aimed to (1) determine differences in participation between individuals with and without depression within the same age groups and (2) determine the differences in participation across age groups for individuals who are depressed and for individuals who are not depressed.
