Caregiver Burden, Elder Abuse, and Alzheimer's Disease: Testing the Relationship
Author: RANDY GAINEY and BRIAN PAYNE
Published in JHHSA, Vol. 29 No. 2
Caregiver burden is among the most cited explanations for
elder abuse in the literature. Despite its popularity, the explanation is

considers the role of caregiver burden in 751 suspected cases of elder
abuse. The results suggest that the role of burden has been misstated in
past research. Implications are provided.
