The purpose of the present study is to examine support seeking and caregiving behaviors among individuals with early stage AD or related dementia and their adult child caregivers. Although self-reported attachment styles have been shown to predict older adults? well-being, little research has focused on observed attachment behaviors as they occur in older adults? relationships. Support-seeking and caregiving behaviors are important targets for dyadic interventions because behaviors have direct implications for both parents? and children?s well-being.
