Stability and Change in the Informal Task Support Network of Frail Older Persons.
Miller, Baila; McFall, Stephanie
Gerontologist, v31 n6 p735-45 Dec 1991
Examined predictors of stability and change in informal support networks of frail elders and primary caregivers. Data from 1982 and 1984 National Long Term Care Surveys and 1982 Informal Caregivers Survey revealed that changes in network size and intensity of help occurred in response to changes in health and functional status of frail elder, not to caregiver burden.
