  1. Bold estimates are significant with p < .05
  2. CG caregiver, CR care recipient, 95% CI 95% confidence interval
  3. aresults from separate regression models, because household care tasks and personal care tasks were collinear
  4. bresults from separate regression models, because multimorbidity, functional limitations, and cognitive functioning were collinear
