Dementia and Cancer: A Comparison of Spouse Caregivers.
Clipp, Elizabeth C.; George, Linda K.
Gerontologist, v33 n4 p534-41 Aug 1993
Compared 272 spouse caregivers of dementia sufferers with 30 spouse caregivers of cancer victims on multiple indicators of well-being. Found that dementia caregivers were more adversely affected by their role than cancer caregivers. Illness duration and caregivers' employment status did not help to explain this difference. Younger spouse caregivers were significantly more compromised than older spouse caregivers. (Author/NB)
