Greene, Vernon L.; Monahan, Deborah J.
Gerontologist, v27 n6 p716-21 Dec 1987
Compared data from family caregivers who participated in support and education groups and caregivers who enrolled but did not participate. Found care receivers of participants had statistically significantly lower institutionalization rates than did care receivers of non-participants. Savings from deterred nursing home use more than offset program costs. (Author)
