Theorizing about Family Caregiving: The Role of Responsibility.
Piercy, Kathleen W.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v60 n1 p109-18 Feb 1998
The meaning of familial responsibility to older members was investigated by interviewing two or three generations in families (N=15 families) providing assistance to older family members in a noninstitutional setting. Shared responsibility and responsibility to other family members are found to be important. A broader conceptualization of filial responsibility is discussed. (EMK)
