Family experiences of vegetative and minimally conscious states

In this section you can find out about the experience of having a relative in a vegetative or minimally conscious state by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories.

Two researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 65 people in their own homes. 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.

This section is based on research by the Coma and Disorders of Consciousness Research Centre, Cardiff University.
