A Seven-Year Follow-Up of Intelligence Test Scores of Foster Grandparents
Troll, Lillian E.; And Others
Journal of Gerontology, 31, 5, 583-585, Sep 76
After seven years, a group (N=32) of originally nonemployed poverty-level older people (over 60) now employed as foster grandparents were retested with the WAIS. Three subtest scores showed stability and Digit Span showed a statistically significant drop. Neither age nor initial level of health or WAIS scores was related to test-score changes over time.
