Theoretical Perspectives Concerning Positive Aspects of Caring for Elderly Persons with Dementia: Stress/Adaptation and Existentialism.
Farran, Carol J.
Gerontologist, v37 n2 p250-56 Apr 1997
Uses an existentialist perspective to examine the current empirical stress/adaptation model that guides caregiving of persons with dementia. Compares and contrasts key elements, strengths, and limitations of each model and isolates areas of convergence/divergence in both perspectives. Identifies implications for future theory development, research, and clinical practice. (RJM)
