Do negative attitudes towards elderly members of the family affect the quality of family caregiving? Can authoritarian family traditions influence the frequency of paternalistic decision making? This volume answers these and other vital questions and discusses family caregiving in the long-term care system, the meaning of autonomy and paternalism, the nature of dyadic family decision making and how it is affected by factors such as lack of education. Unique to this volume is its emphasis on autonomy in family care as opposed to formal care.
