A woman grips her car's steering wheel and silently lets out a scream as her frail father, on oxygen, coughs beside her and her kids play around in the back seat.
She says her mother skips her prepaid meals in favor of a cookie stash, misses medication despite Phillips' daily take-your-pills phone calls and is embarrassed to find herself struggling to remember and perform personal hygiene _ the kind of day-to-day issues that health providers didn't address.
"I do constantly feel that I'm playing catch-up," said Phillips, adding that she feels guilty when she gets frustrated. "I'm trying to find the right resources so Mom and I can continue to have a good relationship."
