Residential Differences in the Composition of the Helping Networks of Impaired Elders.
Coward, Raymond T.; And Others
Family Relations, v39 n1 p44-50 Jan 1990
Used data from 1984 Supplement on Aging to National Health Interview Survey to examine residential differences in helping network composition of 3,761 impaired elders. Severely impaired elders in nonmetropolitan communities were less apt than metropolitan counterparts to receive aid from formal providers and were significantly more likely to receive aid from informal helpers exclusively.
