Abstract

This study evaluated coping behaviors and social support mediation on the relationship between stress and the outcome variables of perceived physical health and life satisfaction through a progression of models. It was found that although coping behaviors and social support were not mediators, these variables continue to be significant in the caregiving process. Caregivers were found to have significant path differences based on ethnicity, relationship to the care receiver, and gender.
