Donovan, Rebecca; And Others
Social Work, v38 n5 p579-85 Sep 1993
Interviewed 400 union members, majority of whom were low-income African American and Latina women who care for frail aged and disabled Medicaid recipients in their homes. Found that home care workers expressed need for better health care coverage, especially for stress-related illnesses, along with personal social services to assist with housing, debt, child care, and family issues.
