Characteristics of grandmothers living with their grandchildren in custodial and coresident households were contrasted. Data from 867 grandmothers indicated both similarities and differences in demographics, and in characteristics of the grandmothers and grandchildren. Hierarchical regressions examined predictors of caregiving satisfaction, burden, positive affect, and negative affect. Results suggest that while there are some similar predictors of these outcomes for custodial and coresident grandmothers, there are also predictors that are unique. Implications for policy are discussed.
