In this audio feature we meet some of the people who seldom make the news headlines, but who make all the difference to those people who are bed-ridden with AIDS-related diseases. All around the country, home-based care-givers walk the extra mile to make the lives of the terminally ill and their families as comfortable as possible.   Produced by Kerry Cullinan and Sue Valentine.
