Examined psychological and immunological changes among 25 caregivers of Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients, 25 caregivers of stroke patients, and 25 noncaregivers. Found that AD caregiving group was more psychologically distressed than stroke group, and both caregiving groups were more psychologically distressed than controls. Found no differences among three groups with respect to immunologic function. (Author/NB)
