Welcome to the newly named 68Spidrs podcast “The Juggling Caregiver”.

Here I focus on personal experiences, useful tips and information about being a mother in her 50’s to an autistic child, and my previous role of caregiver for parents with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

I discuss a variety of subjects. The good, the bad, and the extremely messy, so if you’re only looking for a podcast about sunshine and rainbows, well….not sure we’re a match. However, if you want to hear from someone who doesn’t sugarcoat it, and speaks honestly about all the heart-breaking, weird and wonderful things that happen along the way please join me.

I will have guests from time to time, providing great information, engaging conversation and bringing a fresh voice to the show.

I try to find humour when and where I can, as it’s given me the strength to get through my really tough days. You may even find the odd reference to Monty Python or Mel Brooks comedies if you’re lucky!

So stay tuned for new episodes coming your way.

In conversation with Paul Nelson – author, caregiver/parent and autism advocate 68Spidrs – The Juggling Caregiver

Today's episode features Paul Nelson. Paul is a retired middle school music teacher who decided to pursue his other passion – writing, and is now the author of 11 books. Paul is also the parent and caregiver to his non-verbal, autistic son Michael who is the inspiration for his writing. They are a team and all of their books include a lot about them, and their life adventures with autism. They believe that by including people with disabilities in their fiction, it is one of the best ways to encourage tolerance and acceptance. — Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/elissa-boreham/message
