Daughters' Help to Mothers: Intergenerational Aid versus Caregiving.
Walker, Alexis J.; Pratt, Clara C.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v53 n1 p3-12 Feb 1991
Compared aid given by adult daughters to self-sufficient elderly mothers (n=43) with that given by adult daughters to elderly mothers who were dependent for aid (n=139). Results suggest caregiving is intensification of preexisting patterns of aid-giving that is evident in female intergenerational relationships. (Author/ABL)
