Natural Helping among Older Adults.
Goodman, Catherine Chase
Gerontologist, v24 n2 p138-43 Apr 1984
Surveyed 67 neighbors in retirement housing to identify characteristics and helping styles within an informal support system. Findings confirmed three exchange types: (1) high helpers, who exhibit a quasiprofessional style; (2) mutual helpers, who show an interdependent style; and (3) neighborhood isolates, whose social ties are outside the neighborhood.
