Formatted abstract
The caregiving scenario in Dr Winch’s paper provokes a response, not because it is new to us but because we do not ask enough questions. Stroke is but one of a spectrum of chronic life-limiting illnesses (CLLIs) that seem to creep in with age and longevity in more developed countries. The likelihood of having to care for someone with a CLLI increases with the rising prevalence of CLLIs, as the author has noted. It is not new for humans to care for one another, but moving the location of more demanding levels of care from professional settings into the home revolutionises the time and space of carers’ personal lives. We have normalised this.
