Time Spent Caregiving and Help Received by Spouses and Adult Children of Brain-Impaired Adults.
Enright, Robert B., Jr.
Gerontologist, v31 n3 p375-83 Jun 1991
Surveyed 233 family caregivers for brain-impaired adults. Spousal caregivers (both husbands and wives) devoted much time to caregiving. Most caregivers received little assistance from other family members and friends, but husbands received more than others. Employed spouses received more paid help than unemployed spouses; employment did not affect amount of paid help received by adult daughters. (Author/NB)
