Relationships between Caregiving Daughters and Their Elderly Mothers.
Walker, Alexis J.; Allen, Katherine R.
Gerontologist, v31 n3 p389-96 Jun 1991
Qualitative study of 29 pairs of widowed mothers and caregiving daughters employed social exchange theory to identify three relationship types: intrinsic, ambivalent, and conflicted. Found types differed in extent to which women received rewards from interacting with partner, experienced costs in interactions, handled conflicts in relationships, and expressed feelings of concern for each other.
