LOVE AND CARE
Love and Care is a beautifully heartfelt and gently humorous account of a son caring for his mother who has Parkinson’s Dementia whilst getting to grips with his own post-divorce life. With his mother in a care home, Shaun Deeney knew he had a choice to make: leave her there, or give up his new-found freedom to care for her. A hugely timely publication, as the number of carers in UK is significantly rising year on year.
‘An honest and thoughtful memoir. Moving but, ultimately, full of hope. Beautiful.’ Kate Mosse
Shaun Deeney is a former journalist and Emmy award-winning film and TV producer. He has made current affairs programmes for ITV on social issues, including care. He is also the creator of a podcast on caring for his mother called ‘Love and Care’.
Shaun will be in conversation with Chris Stone.
