In-Hospital Respite as a Moderator of Caregiver Stress.
Larkin, John P.; Hopcroft, Barbara Most
Health & Social Work, v18 n2 p132-38 May 1993
Obtained data on family caregiver stress from 23 family caregivers before, during, and following respite. Findings suggest that stress was moderated by in-hospital respite program for patients with Alzheimer's disease. Although short-term benefits may be realized for caregivers, in-hospital Alzheimer's respite care may present particular risk for patient decline, adverse events, and institutionalization.
