Today I’m chatting with my guest Lindsay Schuster. Lindsay and I connected in an autism Facebook group where she had posted about recently becoming a caregiver to her 53 year old cousin, John, who is on the spectrum. After John’s mother (Lindsay’s aunt) passed away, Lindsay and her family were trying to decide the best course of action for John. They were planning on an assisted living facility, but Lindsay felt a calling for John to move in with her family and become his main caregiver. While they had grown up together, living with John and autism in general, opened a whole new world for Lindsay. Today we’re discussing everything that has come along with their journey. All the challenges and the triumphs. From how her family is adjusting (Lindsay is a mom of three), to the many ways John is impacting their lives. In her own words, John is “teaching me to love more.” This episode was so heartwarming! I’m truly blown away by Lindsay and I loved our conversation. I hope you enjoy listening!
