In celebration of Pride Month 2021, we had the honor of speaking with Chris MacLellan, author of "What's The Deal With Caregiving?". Christopher and his partner, Richard Schiffer, were featured in a 2015 Pulitzer Prize-nominated caregiving story "In Sickness and Health; A Couple's Final Journey", that chronicled their journey of caregiving. The story told of the challenges that LGBT partners have in dealing with the medical and legal system, but it also told of the love and joy that Richard’s last years had on their relationship.
The Whole Care Network™ has been a dream of Chris’ for quite some time. He started The Whole Care Network based on his own experience as a working family caregiver and the passion that he has gained through advocacy and collaboration before, during and after caregiving ends.
Christopher MacLellan is affectionately known nation-wide as The Bow Tie Guy in the vast network of family caregivers. He founded the Whole Care Network in 2016, presents regularly on topics that impact family Caregivers and now is Aging Gayfully after caregiving has ended.
