Filial Responsibility Expectations and Morale Among Aged Parents
Seelbach, Wayne C.; Sauer, William J.
Gerontologist, 17, 6, 492-498, Dec 77
Tabular analysis of responses from 595 elderly parents showed their filial responsibility expectations to be inversely associated with morale. Although the low income sample restricts generalizability, the findings suggest that in modern, urban settings high FR expectancies are inconsistent with high levels of morale. Implications for social policy as well as for individual and family adjustment are discussed. (Author)
