Spousal and Intimate Partner Caregiving

  • Twyla J. Hill


Caregiving by spouses and other intimate partners is reviewed. Husbands and wives tend to provide different types of care. Caregiving has different effects, costs, consequences, and rewards for husbands and wives. Also, they receive different amounts and types of support and assistance from others. In addition, research on caregiving by older same sex and cohabiting partners is surveyed.
