Effects of Formal and Familial Residential Plans for Adults with Mental Retardation on Their Aging Mothers.
Pruchno, Rachel A.; Patrick, Julie Hicks
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v104 n1 p38-52 Jan 1999
Analysis of data regarding future residential plans of 141 mothers of adult children with mental retardation found that greater care giving burden was associated with more extensive planning for residence within the formal service system and less planning for residence with a family member. More frequent service use predicted greater planning for future residence within the formal system. (Author/DB)
