Personality Traits as Determinants of Burden and Health Complaints in Caregiving.
Reis, Myrna Feldman; And Others
International Journal of Aging & Human Development, v39 n3 p257-71 1994
Researchers surveyed 213 caregivers to test the influence of personality traits on negative outcomes of caregiving. High scores on a measure of neuroticism indicated increased levels of burden and health complaints both at initial and follow-up assessments. Personality traits and other variables remained consistent over time for caregivers continuing home care. (RJM)
