Stories of Care
Episode 5: Tobii Stories, A Day in the Life of Rachel

Tobii Stories, A Day in the Life of Rachel is the sixth episode of the podcast Stories of Care, a series that features the clients, caregivers, friends and family of the C.A.R.E. Centre. The C.A.R.E. Centre is a recreational centre for adults living with severe physical disabilities, many of whom are non-verbal and communicate through low- and high-tech communication systems.

This episode focuses on Rachel, her support workers at home and her family, and the ways in which they communicate. Ranging from head nods and fist pumps to yes-no boards and eye gaze, these varying modes of communication ultimately show their deep affection for one another and Rachel’s finely-honed sense of humour.

Rachel, support worker Mischa and Louise Campbell collaborated closely in the editing and production of this episode. Music was composed by Tim Brady.
