Heller, Tamar; Hsieh, Kelly; Rowitz, Louis
Family Relations, v46 n4 p407-15 Oct 1997
Compares the objective (time demand and support provided) and subjective dimensions (caregiving burden) of caregiving for fathers and mothers of children and adults with mental retardation. Results based on 113 families indicate that mothers spent more time providing care, offered more types of support, and perceived more caregiving burden. (RJM)
