Noonan, Anne E.; Tennstedt, Sharon L.
Gerontologist, v37 n6 p785-94 Dec 1997
Examines the relationship between meaning in caregiving (positive beliefs about the caregiving situation and the self as caregiver) and the psychological well-being of 131 informal caregivers to community-residing frail elders. Results indicate that meaning in caregiving explained a significant portion of the differences in depression and self-esteem scores. (RJM)
