Caregiver Support Groups: Factors Affecting Use of Services.
Monahan, Deborah J.; And Others
Social Work, v37 n3 p254-60 May 1992
Examined effects of factors on support group attendance among family caregivers to frail elderly relatives. Found that attendance by primary caregivers was greater for those who were older, who had secondary informal caregiver involved in providing care, or who had significant health problems. Attendance was greater for those caring for Alzheimer's victims and for those experiencing higher burden. (Author/NB)
