Caregiver Chronicles

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 for which they care.

Yet, for older adults experiencing cognitive, motor, and/or mobility changes, the process of getting dressed and undressed can be stressful, painful, and stigmatizing.

What Our Friends of the Show say....

"Sarah has got to experience tons of different caretaking scenarios and caring for others has been a major part of her life. Sarah uses the Caregiver Chronicles as an outlet to share her story and help others in similar situations. Dealing with children on the spectrum isn’t an easy task as a caregiver. Sarah gives parenting advice and elderly care advice. She also talks with guests who have their own caretaking stories. Her entire life revolves around caring for others, and her messages prove useful to other busy caretakers"

Madeline Miller-

"It’s clear that Brown has faced the concept of caregiving from many angles and for multiple types of illnesses or disabilities. This makes her take on the subject particularly helpful for a wide variety of people. She also invites guests who can shed light on a specific topic relating to caregiving. 

Caregiver Chronicles is one of the best caregiver podcasts for those who appreciate a straight-shooter approach to the highs and lows of caregiving but also have a desire to learn more about the caregiving community as a whole."

"So needed, so much heart

Thank you for the wisdom you bring from your years of caregiving. Unless someone has been there, they don’t know the unique challenges, tradeoffs and also wisdom gained from caregiving. I’m grateful that you are sharing your voice and your heart."


"Loving This!

This has touched home for me in so many ways as I am always caring for others in my family. Thank you for sharing your inspiration to help people feel hopeful and courageous to keep going!"
