Older Widows and the Transference of Home.
Hartwigsen, Gail
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v25 n3 p195-207 1987
Presents a relocation pattern indicated by a sample of older widows (N=25) as they relocated from homes previously shared with their husbands to a life care facility. Illustrates the suggested pattern with quotations at each identified stage. Suggests the women's high income, educational levels, independence, and prior careers were conducive to their apparently successful relocation. (Author/ABL)
