Views about Planning for the Future among Parents and Siblings of Adults with Mental Retardation.
Griffiths, Diane Lynn; Unger, Donald G.
Family Relations, v43 n2 p221-27 Apr 1994
Forty-one pairs of parents and siblings of adult family members with mental retardation completed questionnaires concerning future planning. Although almost one-half of siblings were willing to assume caregiving responsibilities in future, parents were reluctant to have them take on caregiving. Cognitive demands of mentally retarded members and family communication were predictive of siblings' willingness to provide caregiving. (Author/NB)
