Godkin, Michael A.; And Others
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v28 n3 p207-25 1989
Compared 59 abused and 49 non-abused elders to identify factors contributing to elder abuse and neglect by caregivers in domestic setting. Found that members of abusive families often had emotional problems. Abused elders and caregivers had become increasingly interdependent because of loss of other family members, social isolation, and financial dependency of perpetrator on elderly person. (Author/NB)
