Abstract

This study investigated (a) attitudes toward service use among wife caregivers of frail older veterans; and (b) the relationship between those attitudes and service utilization by the wives. The study focused on three sets of attitudinal variables: attitudes towards various kinds of dependencies; individual and family ethos concerning service use;and perceptions of responsibility for care. Respondents were 80 wife caregivers of frail older (age 55+) veterans at a Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in a Midwestern state. Most caregivers agreed that it is acceptable to get help with the physical care of the husband and to get help themselves for the emotional strains caused by caregiving. Acceptability of a wife's getting help with the physical careof her husband was a positive predictor of number of services ever used and frequency of in home service use. Wives' view that help from outside agencies should be used only as a last resort was the strongest and most consistent negative predictor of both number of services everused and frequency of service use.
