Parenthood: Disability and Invisibility feat. Unseen Documentary Crew

Season 1, Episode 2

The Caregiver Trending podcast features discussions on caregiving topics, interviews with thought leaders, and provides expert advice for caregivers from Homethrive’s in-house Care Guides.

Our interview today is with documentary filmmakers Amanda Dyer and Tom Dyer.

Many caregivers for children or adults who are medically complex are exhausted and isolated. The award-winning documentary Unseen gives an unfiltered, honest glimpse into the parent caregivers that so often go ignored or unsupported as they raise children with disabilities.

Unseen follows Jess and Ryan Ronne, a blended family with 8 children, including Lucas, who has profound disabilities that require constant care. Their situation becomes more and more challenging as Lucas gets older and stronger. With limited resources and support, caregiving takes a toll on their physical and mental health.

Today, we have some of the filmmakers on the podcast to go behind-the-scenes on the making of the documentary, and what they’ve learned about the families that so often go Unseen.
