  • The Trail — age 61 — diagnosed dementia?

    in Family

    CareGiverStory, is proud to have as our very special guest, Kevin O'Brien — entrepreneur, filmmaker, son, brother and a caregiver to his father. The moment I spoke with Kevin —I immediately wanted to interview him, and his family to share their amazing story.  About family  love..
    Bio: Born in 1989, Kevin O'Brien enjoyed 20 years in a healthy home, under the wing of his parents Sandra and Michael O'Brien. In 2009, at the age of 61, his father was diagnosed with early onset frontotemporal lobe dementia. As the year passed, Michael's cognition decreased, and the caregiving responsibilities Kevin shared with his brother, Connor O'Brien, and his mother, increased. Those years also saw Kevin graduated CSULB with a degree in Political Science, work four years at the public affairs firm GrassrootsLab, and leap into the entertainment industry with a contractual position at NBCUniversal. Kevin now spends his time looking for his next professional avenue and working to produce The Trail, a short film that seeks to chronicle the period of time between his father's diagnosis and his 5150, a psychotic break that his father experienced, one that required his medication and speed his need for round-the-clock care.

About Family

Like the TV show, modern families come in all shapes and sizes. Many children are a product of divorce, are in touch with both their biological and adopted parents, have two moms or two dads (or both), or are being raised by their grandparents. No matter how atypical the face of today's family, the values stay the same: love and support. Moms and dads will find plenty of support in BlogTalkRadio's parenting shows, especially those about time-management topics that fit both stay-at-home and working parents: organizing kids' activity schedules, decluttering, reducing the workweek, managing stress, making quick meals and more. We've also got shows about friendship – you know, your family of choice rather than family of origin. Just remember: everyone's family seems dysfunctional in its own way. And family may irritate you, but more often than not, you can always count on family to pick you up from the airport.
