Caregiving and Multigenerational Families.
Baum, Martha; Page, Mary
Gerontologist, v31 n6 p762-69 Dec 1991
Examined possibility that extension of traditional family household boundaries foreshadows expanded caregiving system as family lines grow longer. Study of 25 4-generation families found that 1 primary caregiver, either spouse or daughter, generally shouldered responsibility for members in adversity. Caregiving system encompassing more than two generations in direct descent was not discernible. (Author/NB)
