Cognition of Caregiving Tasks: Multidimensional Scaling of the Caregiver Task Domain.
Albert, Steven M.
Gerontologist, v31 n6 p726-34 Dec 1991
Investigated distinctions caregivers use in thinking about home care tasks. Adult child caregivers (n=52) sorted 25 cards with caregiving tasks into similar groups. Results revealed three dimensions in caregiver task domain: type of impairment (physical versus cognitive-emotional), location of caregiving (within home versus outside home), and response to parental incompetency (autonomy-fostering versus guardianship).
