Author Eli Gottlieb allowed cameras to come along for one of his regular trips to visit his brother, Josh, who lives on an assisted living campus. Josh has been a resident of various state and private run programs for individuals on the autism spectrum for nearly 50 years. When their mother passed away a few years ago, Eli became Josh's sole guardian.

Here you get a glimpse into Josh's life, and hear a bit about just a couple of the broader issues facing adults on the spectrum who require full time assistance.
