Stephens, Mary Ann Parris; Bernstein, Murray D.
Gerontologist, v24 n2 p144-48 Apr 1984
Examined social support networks for 44 residents of two planned housing facilities. While other residents often were regarded as sources of support, the locus of these networks lay with persons outside the housing facilities. The less healthy were more socially isolated, except in times of a medical crisis. (JAC)
