INTERVIEW: Carrie Hoestermann & Being A Caretaker
Nov 04, 2020 Season 1 Episode 13
Theresa Thomas // Guest: Carrie Hoestermann

November is caregiver awareness month. Being a caregiver to someone who is chronically ill is taxing and tiring and thankless. This week we sat down with Carrie, Kristine’s wife, to get her to take on life as a caretaker. She shares her experience of watching her best friend and love of her life get sick and how she manages a caretaker role as well as the role of a spouse.

 Think of the people who are sharing their health story on social media or a blog, leading a Facebook group, hosting a podcast, working with nonprofits, collaborating with healthcare, and more!

 That's why the BC Schizophrenia Society has launched a brand new podcast, called Look Again, Mental Illness Re-examined. Host Faydra Aldridge talks to doctors, families, and people with lived experience about how to recognize mental illness, and the specific treatments that can help. Check it out. They'll really challenge you to“look again” at what you think you know about mental illness.
