Does Type of Disease Matter: Gender Differences Among Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease Spouse CaregiversThe Gerontologist (2000)
AbstractMental health outcomes are widely reported among spouse caregivers, with wives generally faring worse than husbands. We hypothesized that gender differences would not be as strong in a cognitively intact group because caring for cognitively intact spouses may involve less severe reciprocity losses. We also examined gender differences in coping strategies within each group.
