Lewis School of Nursing, the School of Social Work, and Project Healthy Grandparents recently co-authored a study on behavioral problems in homes where grandmothers are the primary caregivers to their grandchildren. In the study, Susan J. Kelly, Deborah M. Whitley, and Peter E. Campos explore the issues of caregiver distress, family resources, and home environment issues these situations, which have increased significantly in recent years.
