Prevalence of Depression in Family Caregivers.
Gallagher, Dolores; And Others
Gerontologist, v29 n4 p449-56 Aug 1989
Studied depression of family caregivers seeking help to increase coping skills (N=158) and volunteer non-help-seekers (N=58). Found depression among 46 percent of help-seekers and 18 percent of non-help-seekers. Found women more depressed than men but no major differences in depression for those caring for more impaired persons. (Author/CM)
