Deimling, Gary T.; Smerglia, Virginia L.
Family Relations, v41 n1 p86-90 Jan 1992
Examined racial differences in composition of care-related decision-making networks. Data from 244 family caregivers revealed that African Americans were significantly less likely to identify older care recipient as involved or as key decision maker when compared to whites. Older individuals' physical and mental impairments were also important predictors of involvement in decision making. (Author/NB)
