This study was concerned with identifying the impact of variables such as subjective burden, social support, positive aspects of caring, making decisions for the future, gender, income and respite on the mental health of older parent carers of a son or daughter with an intellectual disability (ID). Ninety-two carers aged between 57-87 (M = 70.8 years), of which 19.6% were male, from non-statutory organisations and groups, participated in the study. A cross-sectional survey research design was used to collect quantitative as well as qualitative data for the current study.
