The Role of Adult Children in Helping Chronically Ill Hospitalized Parents.
Hall, Barry L.
Canadian Journal on Aging, v8 n1 p68-78 Spr 1989
Results of a study of the types of help provided by 27 adult children to chronically ill parents demonstrated that despite profound stress and strain, they still provided a range of help within the formal structures of the hospital. Dependence was a weak indicator and stress was a stronger indicator of the adult child's helping behavior. (JOW)
