These are a part of a series of interviews which Diana Parnicza conducted in the course of her project concerning Appalachian caregivers. Alcie DeJarnett (identified in the interview as Caregiver #3) discusses: her family and family situation in great detail; a detailed discussion of taking care of her husband; her own health; the decision to care for her husband at home rather than at a nursing home; nurse aids; how life has changed since her husband became sick; and other topics. She also answers a survey consisting of 90 true-or-false questions designed to give an impression about the interviewee's family life.
