Family Experiences of Vegetative and Minimally Conscious States

Overview

In this section you can find out about the experience of having a relative in a vegetative or minimally conscious state. The two researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 65 people in their own homes. Here you can hear and see people share their personal stories.  Find out about issues such as hope, care and treatment, making decisions, impact on the family and reflections on consciousness, recovery and the end of life.
