Old Women's Experiences of Needing Care: Choice or Compulsion?
Aronson, Jane
Canadian Journal on Aging, v9 n3 p234-47 Fall 1990
Interviews with 14 middle-class women aged 59-85 uncovered contradictions between their need for support and security and desire to be independent and self-sufficient. Low expectations of public services and a sense of marginality in their families exacerbated the conflict. Ways to help elderly women shape supportive environments were proposed. (SK)
