Stoneman, Zolinda; Crapps, John M.
American Journal of Mental Retardation, v93 n2 p166-73 Sep 1988
The study of individuals (N=104) providing family care homes for mentally retarded residents found that amount of social support best predicted stress and perceptions of competence, that the presence of a handicapped person in the provider's family best predicted self-perception of competence, and that home provider age best predicted depression.
