Barusch, Amanda S.
Gerontologist, v28 n5 p677-85 Oct 1988
Conducted in-depth interviews with 89 caregiving spouses to identify problems and coping techniques. Found the diversity of problems encountered by respondents required a varied repertoire of coping techniques. Caregivers showed general preference for managing situations on their own. Findings have implications for design of caregiver support programs. (Author/NB)
