CareGiverStoryis 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.
