Shaun Deeney had just embarked on a new life abroad. No longer brooding on his divorce, and with his two daughters grown up, he was making a fresh start and hoping to find love again. Until the sudden death of his father changes everything.

 

With his mother in a care home, Shaun knows he has a choice to make: leave his mother there, or give up his new-found freedom to care for her in the home she once shared with his father.

 

Love & Care charts his first year of learning to care for his mum who has Parkinson’s dementia; the changing seasons framing their relationship as Shaun connects with his mother through music, food and everyday joys. Will he cope and prove the doubters wrong? What will it mean for his chances of finding love?

I have worked as a journalist on local papers and in local radio, made social action and documentary programmes for television, and produced for film, including a role for Illuminations on the Emmy award-winning performance film, Gloriana.

 

And that is not all…

 

I have also worked as a paella chef, a hot air balloon recovery chap, a painter and decorator, and a teacher of psychology. 

 

But I am chiefly a dad.
