Social engagement can protect community-dwelling elderly from depression (2007 study from the Journal of Aging and Health)

“Social engagement levels appear to have a significant protective effect against depression in the elderly who are not already depressed. Even after factors associated with social engagement such as marital status and chronic conditions are taken into account, those seniors who remain connected to their communities through volunteer work, or social and leisure activities are less likely to become depressed. Clinically, these results suggest that social engagement might be a target for interventions in elderly care programs.”
