CAREGIVERS

My various services meet your needs by providing targeted, practical support and solutions

for the everyday reality of caring for someone else.

 

Whether you are a relative, neighbour, friend or any other connection to the person you help, my services can provide you with specific insight into your personal situation. No matter the age of the person that you are supporting, nor whether they have a diagnosis or not, my services can be beneficial to you in many circumstances, such as:

  • exactly how to do what you need to do

  • clarifying the person's needs

  • how to approach crisis situations and difficult behaviour

  • what resources are available

  • understanding the person’s diagnosis, disability or disorder (including neurodiversity)

  • how to apply professional recommendations into your everyday life

  • breaking through the overwhelm

  • what can be done to help beyond what is already being done

  • seeking new information and ideas

  • researching services, programs, policies, laws, resources etc.

  • how to promote and/or maintain independence

  • and more……

If you are looking for help with something that is not listed here, don't hesitate to contact me to find out if I can help.

Caregiver Services

SERVICES

I work directly with you to understand your priorities and to determine your needs. 

Together, we reflect on your personal goals as well as your goals for the person in your care, and find real-life strategies for supporting their learning and growth or providing the most effective care possible.

I always strive to respect personal limitations, values and beliefs,

and understand and acknowledge who you and the person you are caring for are.

Given that they are needs based and solution oriented, some services may be available as an independent service or as a specifically tailored package based on a completed needs assessment.

You can find more information below, or you can book a free thirty minute phone or virtual call to discuss your situation and get a personalized recommendation about which service would best meet your needs.

Caregivers: Online Coaching

"Coaching is a process that aims to improve performance and focuses on the ‘here and now’ rather than on the distant past or future.

While there are many different models of coaching, here we are not considering the ‘coach as expert’ but, instead, the coach as a facilitator of learning.

There is a huge difference between teaching someone and helping them to learn. In coaching, fundamentally, the coach is helping the individual to improve their own performance: in other words, helping them to learn.

Good coaches believe that the individual always has the answer to their own problems but understands that they may need help to find the answer."
