In my eldercare coaching I work with the midlife daughter/son, wife, husband, partner, friend - to identify eldercare goals, develop strategies and action plans intended to bring about the best outcome of care for you and your loved one. I share specific insights and skills to empower you toward being the best caregiver for your elder relative or friend. I assist you in finding resources once a plan has been adopted. I keep up with the latest research and approaches for those with cognitive impairment and am constantly learning innovative ways to support families and individuals dealing with the specific challenges of caring for a loved one with memory issues.
When appropriate I have found that a tool I've developed called the Spinning Wheel of Caregiving RolesTM in conjunction with the Pearson-Marr Achetypal Indicator, developed by Dr. Carol Pearson, are extremely helpful for matching caregiver roles with individual styles and personalities.
