The aging Black population and its need for care is growing rapidly with Black females typically serving as caregivers. Caregiving is often perceived as burdensome and taxes the caregiver's resource capabilities. Increases in systolic blood pressure (SBP) while with care recipients have been reported. Using Rosenbaum's theory of learned resourcefulness (LR), which postulates that situational and physiological factors influence resourcefulness in daily activities, this study examined the perceived costs of caregiving (costs) and SBP of Black female caregivers (N=61; M age =57) in relation to their LR at two time points. There were no significant changes in costs, SBP, or LR over time and neither costs nor SBP predicted LR at either time point. The findings support Rosenbaum's contention that resourcefulness is stable overtime; however costs and SBP, representing the situational and physiological factors in this model, did not explain LR of the Black female caregivers, possibly owing to the homogeneity, stability, or size of the sample. Other potential mediators may explain LR and include caregiving rewards and duration. The effects of anti-hypertensive medications may explain the low SBP variability. Future model testing will examine other antecedents of resourcefulness in larger, diverse samples of caregivers over time.
