Living Alone with Alzheimer's Disease: Effects on Health and Social Service Utilization Patterns.
Webber, Pamela Arnsberger; And Others
Gerontologist, v34 n1 p8-14 Feb 1994
Examined differences in patterns of service use between persons with probable or possible Alzheimer's disease who lived alone (n=439) versus those living with others (n=2,026). Found that those living alone were more likely female, poor, older, and had milder cognitive impairments; less likely to use medical services; and more likely to use in-home services. (Author/NB)
