This article examines the heterogeneity of the caregiving experience for female family caregivers, using a national probability sample. Caregiving was found to have negative associations for caregivers in a number of domains, with women who cared for their husbands reporting the most negative outcomes. Both a longer duration of caregiving and coresidence put the caregiver at risk for more negative outcomes. The implications of these findings for future research and service delivery are examined.
