The Listening Room

Storytelling is the essential human activity. The harder the situation, the more essential storytelling is.

~ Tim O’Brien, novelist

…to “A Conversation for Caregivers with Judy Shone,” produced by Halton Hills Public Library and moderated by Education Coordinator, Danielle Arbour, from the Alzheimer Society Hamilton Halton.

Audio snippets – Listen to get the tone in my world of caregiving.

Find a seat. I have been waiting for you! Get comfortable. Bring your coffee or cup of tea. ☕ Allow me to read to you, in my own voice . . . which now shows signs of aging.

I believe hearing me read snippets of our stories will help you feel part of our journey when you read the words in the books. 

Listen to some of our world reflected through thoughts I had during those events. Let my voice encourage you to reach out for real people who are there to support you … you are not alone.
