Predictors of depression in a study of 331 adult children whose parents resided in nursing homes were respondent' poor health, time pressures, viewing the parent as demanding, and lack of involvement with IADL tasks. Emotional effects specific to parent' situation were predicted by poor health, negative perceptions of nursing home staff, upsetting visits, time pressures, and being female and young. Predictors of depression and emotional effects between sons and daughters are compared.
