A Conceptual and Empirical Exploration of Personal Autonomy Issues within Family Caregiving Relationships.
Horowitz, Amy; And Others
Gerontologist, v31 n1 p23-31 Feb 1991
Explored personal autonomy issues within family caregiver-care recipient dyads (n=15) in which care recipients were blind or visually impaired. Found little evidence of significant conflicts in relationships although family members were more sensitive to autonomy issues than were their frail older relatives. Both groups defined disability itself as major impediment to autonomy in later life. (Author/ABL)
