Wells, Yvonne D.; Kendig, Hal L.
Gerontologist, v37 n5 p666-74 Oct 1997
Reports on the appropriateness of the stress-coping and life transitions models for late life experiences by examining psychosocial correlates of spouse caregiving. Results, based on 1000 subjects, aged 65 and over, indicate that caregiving was a usual precursor to widowhood and may have prepared older people for widowhood. (RJM)
