Pearson, Jane; And Others
Gerontologist, v28 n1 p79-83 Feb 1988
Examined aspects of patient status and caregiver perceptions in 46 pairs of elderly psychiatric patients and their caregivers. Found that significant predictors of caregiver burden included disruptive patient behavior, caregiver distress, and patients' functional limitations. Findings suggest that predictors of caregiver burden vary with patient diagnosis. (Author/NB)
