Functional impairment as a predictor of depressive symptomatology: the role of race, religiosity, and social support

, : Functional impairment as a predictor of depressive symptomatology: the role of race, religiosity, and social support. Health & Social Work 28(1): 23-32

The study discussed in this article examined the relationship between depression symptomatology and functional impairment among white and African American elderly people and investigated the effect of race, religiosity, and social support on this relationship. Study results indicate that although African American elderly people were more impaired in the performance of activities of daily living (ADL) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) than white elderly people, they did not experience higher levels of depression. However, African Americans did report significantly higher levels of religiosity and social support.
