Aged Parents and Their Widowed Daughters: A Support Relationship.
Bankoff, Elizabeth A.
Journal of Gerontology, v38 n2 p226-30 Mar 1983
Examined the role of social support from parents and others for the psychological well-being of 98 widows. Survey results showed aged parents were the most crucial sources of support; support from others was virtually ineffective. This research suggests important ways middle-aged children may depend upon elderly parents. (Author/JAC)
