        Kleinman, Arthur. The Illness Narratives: Suffering, Healing and the Human Condition. I read chapter 1 (“The Meaning of Symptoms and Disorders) & 7 (Conflicting Explanatory Models in the Care of the Chronically Ill) of Kleinman’s book last week, and then decided it was worth purchasing the book to read it entirely.   Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health. (, March 15). Guided care reduces the use of health services by chronically ill older adults. ScienceDaily. Group visits for chronically ill patients reduce repeat hospital admissions and emergency care use, reduce cost of care, deliver certain preventive services more effectively, and increase patient.   Caring for a chronically ill family member takes an emotional and physical toll on the caregiver. Compound this in a time of disaster, civil unrest, social and economic collapse and you might feel there is no chance for survival. I cannot say that. There might be insurmountable odds against a seriously ill family member living in harsh conditions for very long, but it is my goal as a caregiver.
