Wallhagen, Margaret I.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v36 n3 p219-37 1992-93
Tested model representing hypothesis that perceived control mediates objective and subjective aspects of caregiving and caregiver adaptation. Findings from 60 elderly family caregivers revealed that perceived control had direct relationship with life satisfaction and depression and indirect relationship with subjective symptoms of stress. Wishful thinking coping behavior had negative relationship with all adaptation variables. (Author/NB)
