Caregiver Strain among Black and White Daughter Caregivers: A Role Theory Perspective.
Mui, Ada C.
Gerontologist, v32 n2 p203-12 Apr 1992
Examined caregiving strain of 117 African-American and 464 white daughter caregivers. African Americans reported less role strain. Conflict between caregiving duties and caregivers' personal/social life was predictor for both groups. Unique predictors were poor perceived health, unavailability of respite support, and lower caregiving role demand (for African Americans) and poor quality of parent-daughter relationship and work conflict (for whites).
