My services are designed to provide targeted,
practical support and solutions for the everyday reality
of parenting or caring for someone else.
The immediate support system holds the first responsibility in providing guidance, teaching, and support to the person in their care. Whether you are supporting someone because they are young or aging, because they have a short term illness or a long term disability, the commonality is that everyone has complex diverse needs, including you, the supporter. This is why I have created my services.
The available supports for parents, families and caregivers in both the private and the public systems, do not necessarily consider the individuality of people, and are often used in generalized application. This often results in the recommendation of strategies and tools that may only alleviate the situation rather than address the actual underlying need. Furthermore, it is not always clear how to integrate the recommended tools and methods on a day-to-day basis, and therefore it is difficult for the support network to adapt and ensure effective interventions. The outcome is lack of progress and/or independence for the individual, leaving the support network overwhelmed, discouraged and unsure what to do next.
Having spent my entire career in various systemic environments, my desire to do something that genuinely addresses the issues outlined above gradually grew, until I decided to take the leap in 2020 and create Uni-Diversity. I have combined my professional experiences in the field with my personal experience over the last four years as a caregiver to my father who has Alzheimer's, and developed my approach and services. I believe that the individuality and dignity of the person requiring support is at the core of identifying and meeting needs, and my intention is to provide services that facilitate and increase the effectiveness of the supports that are provided to people with diverse needs throughout their life stages.
My approach and services are intended to be different.
Through my ability to relate to, empathize and listen to people, I help you untangle your situation by
finding the root of any issue or need, and then provide direct support to assist you in realistically taking action.
