About the show
On A Good Day is the podcast delving into brain injury and its impact on all involved. Hosted by Elizabeth Callaghan and Julia Ajayi, our lives changed forever after our husbands suffered a brain injury. It also had a ripple effect on others in our wider family and community.
We’ll be sharing our experiences to help others feel more connected, get inspiring stories from people affected by brain injury and learn more about the condition from our specialist guests.
Expect honest conversations about what goes on behind closed doors: the challenges and triumphs, the good days and the not so good days.
Come join us as we aim to strengthen the communities of people impacted by brain injury and empower others in a similar situation to help them feel less alone and better equipped to take on any challenges – so we can all have more of the good days.
Author and speaker Sara Challice cared for her husband, Neal, for 13 years after he was diagnosed with a brain tumour. She knows first hand how many carers can fall ill looking after a loved one as she reached crisis point herself.
In this episode, she talks honestly about her experience and how putting herself last led to her becoming mentally and physically ill.
She shares how she came back from her lowest point to continue caring for Neal and has put all that she learned along into her award-winning book, Who Cares?
Sara shares with Julia and Elizabeth invaluable information, insights and tips on what carers can do to look after themselves, become more resilient and how you can still enjoy life while looking after someone else.
Elizabeth and Julia also discuss with Sara about identifying as a carer, why some of her and Neal’s friendships didn’t last and why having the right support network is so important in helping you to have more of the good days.
