    Family reintegration within a chronic illness experience relates to the family’s capacity to adapt to reality and make choices, transforming the reality of a chronic illness in an iterative pattern across the lifecycle of the family (Meiers, Krumwiede, Eggenberger, 2016). A family reintegrates not to some form or pre-existing model but to an integrated system that can manage the chronic illness over time while the family evolves simultaneously with its own identity, values and personality (Eggenberger,. Eggenberger, Meiers, Krumwiede, Bliesmer, Earle, 2011).
