On this episode of Power Up Living, host Kelly Galea interviews Gillian Pritchett about a topic many of us in the "sandwich generation" find ourselves faced with. How can we take care of our own financial situation as caring caregivers?
Why is Gillian so passionate about this topic? After an international corporate career spanning many years, Gillian solved a redundancy situation by emigrating from the UK to Canada where she rapidly got hired to a senior position in a corporate travel company. After 9/11 she again faced redundancy, moved back to Montreal and into marketing. After her father died in 2005, she started a consulting business in order to spend chunks of time each year with her mother. In the end she moved back to the UK and ended up becoming a full time carer for her mum. As her mum became frailer Gillian organised her life so that she could be her full time carer. Using her business - The Business Launchpad - as a platform she drew on her knowledge and business experience to create home study courses for people who wanted to start a business or run an existing business more efficiently and successfully. She is now developing a programme to help other caregivers who need an income whilst being at home to care for a loved one.
During this conversation, we’ll focus on two very specific groups of people that Gillian very much enjoys working with – the carer who needs an income and the former carer and people made redundant in later life. We’re going to look at their challenges and how Gillian is able to help. We’ll also look at how carers and older workers are treated – comparing North America and the UK.
We had technical difficulties the first hour due our connection with India. You may want to skip minutes 38-58, by sliding the bar over.
Our first guest will be a film maker from India, Vishaal Nityanand, who is the Chairman at Cinematic Arts Productions. His new film about Dementia, "Life Flows On," will soon be released. Find out how you can see this film and what drove Vishaal to do this project.

Our second guest will be Ann Campanella, Author of the memoir "Motherhood - Lost and Found," which can be purchased on Amazon. Ann's story is an interesting one. It is the story of her mother's descent into Alzheimer's at the same time Ann was longing to become a mother herself.

She is passionate about enabling and inspiring parents, carers, children and young people to move beyond the effects of exposure to early childhood trauma.

Unity... the time for interspecies unification, an honouring of the nature realms and all life on mother earth.
The show will be about the role animals play in the lives of humankind both on a personal and planetary level. I will also discuss the healing techniques taught to me by animals in re-writing past life trauma and renewal of our pre-birth soul contracts- also the dolphin healing techniques using light crystals.
Madeleine Walker is a world renowned Animal Communicator, Horse and Rider Trauma Consultant and Spiritual Empowerment Coach. Her mission is to raise humankind’s awareness of the incredibly deep connections we have with our animals, and the importance of their messages of healing re-empowerment for us and our beautiful planet. She travels extensively to work with wild species, e.g. lions, elephants, whale sharks and large cetaceans, in their natural habitat, and writes and lectures internationally. Madeleine specialises in the past life connections between animals and their human carers. She is a pioneer with her techniques on past life script rewriting, cetacean soul healing and pre-birth soul contract realigning, all taught to her by animals! She has been featured on many US (including Coast to Coast), Canadian, and Australian, radio shows, and in many international publications. She was also a finalist in the 2013 About.com reader’s choice awards for favourite Animal Communicator, and her “Animal Whispers Empowerment cards” were also nominated as finalists in the favourite Oracle card set category.
She has written three books, her first book “An Exchange of Love...Animals healing people in past, present and future lifetimes” published by O Books. “The Whale Whisperer” and “Your Pets’ Past Lives and how they can heal you”.
