Losing an Aged Relative: Perceptual Differences between Spouses and Adult Children.
Bass, David M.; And Others
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v21 n1 p21-40 1990
Compared perceptions of 19 bereaved spouses with those of 47 bereaved adult children. Differences between groups were found in appraised difficulty of the death, number of peripheral sources of support, and assistance from friends and neighbors. Spouses suffered more negative side effects than adult children in reported health and emotional well-being but also reported increased social activity. (Author/NB)
