Meaning in Family Caregiving: Perspectives on Caregiver/Professional Relationships.
Hasselkus, Betty Risteen
Gerontologist, v28 n5 p686-91 Oct 1988
Conducted series of four ethnographic interviews with 15 family caregivers. Found five organizing themes of meaning: Senses of Self, of Managing, of Future, of Fear/Risk, and of Change in Role and Responsibility. Relationships among family caregivers, care-receivers, other family members, and professionals were characterized by theme of tension from discordant views of caregiving situation. (Author/NB)
