Cover story: This paper applies the concept of “linked lives” to sibling caregivers of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, examining caregiving processes and outcomes among siblings. Caregiver empowerment and mood are related to the support that caregivers themselves experience, their own appraisals of caregiving, and how they make meaning of them.  View this paper.
