Here’s a short interview that aired a few months ago on a national morning TV show in Canada.   It will give you a sense of the book.  Here’s the link – sorry, I couldn’t find a way to embed it. http://canadaam.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=315079&playlistId=1.1750084&binId=1.811572&playlistPageNum=1

DONNA THOMSON began her career as an actor, director and teacher. But in 1988, when her son Nicholas was born with severe disabilities, Donna embarked on her second career as a disability activist, author, consultant and writer.

In her book, “THE FOUR WALLS OF MY FREEDOM”, (2010 and coming out in paperback Jan. 2014 by House of Anansi Press), Donna examines her personal family experience with caregiving, probing the ethics and economics of how families giving and receiving care can flourish in society. Donna examines how social innovation leading to practical solutions for families can thrive even in times of austerity – a subject she blogs about regularly at her site “The Caregivers’ Living Room” (www.donnathomson.com). Donna also writes extensively for magazines on the topics of eldercare and family caregiving.
