Difficulties and Rewards in Family Care of the Depressed Older Adult.
Hinrichsen, Gregory A.; And Others
Gerontologist, v32 n4 p486-92 Aug 1992
Spouse and adult child caregivers of older adults with major depressive disorder (n=150) reported most difficult and most regarding aspects of caregiving. Content analysis of reports revealed seven areas of difficulty and three areas of reward. Difficulties and rewards were selectively associated with caregiver's identity, patient clinical characteristics, and caregiver emotional adjustment. (Author/NB)
