Biedenharn, Paula J.; Normoyle, Janice Bastlin
Gerontologist, v31 n1 p107-15 Feb 1991
Surveyed older community dwellers' (n=250) beliefs, fears, and expectations of one day entering a nursing home, and background factors. Results indicated that beliefs regarding care-related issues were more important determinants of their reactions to nursing homes than were the risks their own situation entailed. (Author/ABL)
