A Controlled Study of Respite Service for Caregivers of Alzheimer's Patients.
Lawton, M. Powell; And Others
Gerontologist, v29 n1 p8-16 Feb 1989
Conducted baseline interviews with 642 caregivers of aged Alzheimer's disease patients, then assigned one-half to formal respite care. Over 12 months, families with respite care maintained Alzheimer's patient significantly longer in community than did caregivers without respite. Respite care was ineffective for caregiver burden and mental health, but was satisfying for participants. (Author/NB)
