Six families share the demands of caring full time for loved ones who have suffered such life-changing events as a stroke or a neurological disorder, or life-long condition such as epilepsy. Often consumed with 24/7 care-giving, family members note the emotional and physical demands that include bringing the patient to various specialist, primary care or lab appointments. One daughter talked of the complex scheduling of appointments and having to bring medication lists, as well as ensure medication adherence. Despite the sacrifices and the daily battles, many family members carry on, motivated by doing the right thing, fighting the battle together, and trying to create quality of life for their loved ones. With technological advances in remote care, family members can now care for their loved ones with greater support.
