James Nelson

James cares full time for his elderly parents, who are living with dementia. His aim is to ensure that they stay in their own home. James loves swimming, sailing, kayaking, running, cycling, horse-riding, bush-walking and camping. One of his simple pleasures is walking his dog - a kelpie-Rottweiler cross. James helped establish Melbourne community radio station 3MBS-FM. Other passions include theatre, classical music, cooking, gardening and renovating his Edwardian house. Before becoming a full-time carer, James’ profession was in change management.
