Aging Families Caring for Adult Children with Mental Illness

Over the past decade, I have been investigating the unique challenges faced by aging families of persons with mental illness and identifying those psychological and social resources most helpful in coping with these challenges. This research has been funded by the National Institute of Mental Health [NIMH] since the early 1990s. With this support, I have completed two major studies of families coping with mental illness. In a survey of over 1000 Wisconsin families caring for a relative with a severe and persistent mental illness, we documented the importance of professionals involving family members as collaborators in the treatment process. We found that family members had lower levels of distress when professional care providers involved them as partners in their relative's treatment and provided family members with education about mental illness and its treatment, and advice about how to manage their relative's difficult behaviors.

The second study, conducted in collaboration with Dr. Marsha Mailick Seltzer (UW-Madison) and Dr. Marty Krauss (Brandeis University), has been to investigate differences in the mental health of aging parents caring for an adult child with mental illness and of those caring for an adult child with developmental disabilities. We found that parents caring for a child with mental illness experienced elevated levels of depression and caregiver burden, and greater pessimism about their child's future care than parents caring for an adult son or daughter with mental retardation. This study led to new insights into the differential effectiveness of coping and social support across different caregiving contexts. Dr. Seltzer and I, along with our colleague Dr. Frank Floyd, at Georgia State University, are continuing this comparative line of caregiving research in a newly-funded NIA study using data being collected in the Wisconsin Longitudinal Study (WLS). Our research will investigate how life course attainment in education, occupation, marital, and childbearing domains diverges when parents have long-term caregiving responsibilities for an adult child with a disability. In addition, we will investigate the impact of lifelong caregiving on parental mental and physical health during the transition to retirement.

In collaboration with Dr. Marsha Seltzer, I am presently conducting a five-year, NIMH-funded longitudinal study of aging parents caring for an adult son or daughter with schizophrenia. This study examines the long-term toll that coping with mental illness takes on parental and family well-being. It also explores the involvement of and the effects on the lives of siblings when aging parents are no longer able to remain in a primary caregiving role.
