Coping with Specific Stressors in Alzheimer's Disease Caregiving.
Williamson, Gail M.; Schulz, Richard
Gerontologist, v33 n6 p747-55 Dec 1993
Examined strategies used by 170 Alzheimer's disease caregivers to cope with memory deficits, communication impairments, and decline of loved one. Wishfulness was related to more depressed affect, regardless of stressor type. Relaxation in response to memory deficits, and acceptance in dealing with communication impairments and decline of loved one were related to less depressed affect. (Author/NB)
