    The Episodic Caregiver Support Initiative (ECSI) was launched
    in the fall of 2013 as a year-long project designed to explore the needs
    of family/friend caregivers of individuals with episodic disability in
    Ontario. Episodic disabilities are long-term conditions such as MS,
    arthritis, HIV/AIDS, and certain mental health conditions that are
    characterized by fluctuating periods of wellness and incapacity that
    affect employment and the need for care and assistance from family
    members/close friends and professionals.

    employment and caregiving for adult or elder family members.
