Males as Helpers: The Role of Sons, Relatives, and Friends.
Stoller, Eleanor Palo
Gerontologist, v30 n2 p228-35 Apr 1990
Examined contributions of men other than husbands who provide assistance to elderly people. Data from elders and their primary helpers gathered at two points in time revealed that male helpers provided intermittent assistance with occasional tasks but less frequently undertook routine household chores. Some evidence indicated shift toward female caregivers as elder's functional capacity decreased. (Author/NB)
