About The Caregiving Chronicles Podcast
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Sarah experienced caregiver burnout. She wanted to share her story to help anyone else who may have been experiencing the same thing. With the help of her husband, Jeremy, the pair of them started “Caregiver Chronicles” in their truck, recording episodes on a cell phone.
“Caregiver Chronicles” has grown, allowing Sarah to connect with other caregivers from all walks of life. What started as a podcast by a single caregiver experiencing burnout has become a way for family caregivers to connect, learn and grow.
The podcast has covered a wide variety of topics, from autism awareness and acceptance to dementia caregiving to education and assistance in applying for services. Sarah is not afraid to discuss any issue that affects caregivers and the people they care for.
