We present evidence from a one-year longitudinal study of the prospective associations between depression and functional status in 1,219 stroke survivors after hospital discharge. Cross-lagged analyses found reciprocal relationships between depression and functional status over time. Our results not only aid in the identification of targets for intervention, but they also offer insight into how and when to intervene for stroke survivors transitioning to community settings.
