In this episode you will hear how all about Breeda Miller's play, "Mrs. Kelly's Journey Home" and how Breeda was able to take the play to Ireland.
Breeda had been a guest on the Island Treasures podcast in Season 3, on Episode 20; where she talked about her play and the tour that was planned for the Fall of 2023 in Ireland. This episode talks about the fruition of the tour and what it was like to perform the play in Ireland!
This episode consists of two parts, just like Breeda's play. The first 'act' was recorded in Ireland shortly after the Irish debut of her play. The second 'act' was recorded back home in North America. This entire episode is also available in video format.
You'll hear about how Breeda's play is sweeping the nation as well as the tour; and if you'd like to join Breeda on her next tour of Ireland - she shares when she hopes that will be.
If you'd like to learn more about the resources Breeda has developed for caregivers, or about her play, or engage her as a keynote speaker - you can do so through her website Breedamiller.com
As caregivers tell their stories they will share encouragement and insights to the listeners who may be in the midst of their own caregiving journey. It is a source of wisdom, encouragement and empowerment for caregivers so they do not feel they are alone. The idea for Island Treasures came during the pandemic as a means to reach caregivers in their homes where they may be feeling frustrated, isolated and alone; and needing a boost of encouragement. The guests share how they're managing their own caregiving journeys and what resources they have found especially meaningful so they could cope and even thrive during challenging times for caregivers. Encouragement and hope are both key goals of the podcasts. You may also find moments of joy and laughter mixed in with the realities of caregiving. The podcasts highlight caregivers of folks with dementia, Alzheimer's or other chronic illnesses, as well as elder parents, those providing care to a child or family member with special needs, and also guests who provide resources specific to caregiving: elders and dementia and caregiving tips and strategies. The podcasts are brought to you by Alongside Caregiver Consulting and if you find you are struggling and in need of supports, tap into Alongside Caregiver Consulting to see the resources and services available.
