The Nature of Elder Impairment and Its Impact on Family Caregivers' Health and Psychosocial Functioning.
Cattanach, Lynn; Tebes, Jacob Kraemer
Gerontologist, v31 n2 p246-55 Apr 1991
Assessed nature of elder impairment and its impact on health and psychosocial functioning of 102 family caregivers. Found no differences among caregivers of cognitively impaired, functionally impaired, and nonimpaired elderly relatives in terms of self-reported health or psychosocial functioning. Suggests that other aspects of caregiving context may affect caregiver health and psychosocial functioning more than nature of impairment. (Author/PVV)
