Adaptations for Independent Living by Older Frail Households.
Reschovsky, James D.; Newman, Sandra J.
Gerontologist, v30 n4 p543-52 Aug 1990
Examined how well older frail households cope with requirements of independent living (household operation activities, housing consumption adjustments, health-related activities). Found that those lacking financial resources and informal supports were less likely to cope with independent living requirements and that families carried major burden in helping frail elders meet those requirements.
