Dementia Family Caregiver Mentoring
Caring for a person living with dementia impacts our physical and mental health and well-being. Many people benefit from joining a local dementia caregiver support group. Others prefer the practical skills, personal focus, and confidentiality that private mentoring provides.
One-on-one or as a family caregiving team
Private caregiver mentoring is offered to those seeking one-on-one sessions or as a care giving team (two or three caregivers at a time.) Private training and mentoring session are for family caregivers and family members. (Professional caregiver training programs are available for senior living and memory care communities.)
Private dementia caregiver mentoring sessions are designed to address and satisfy your agenda during each session. You establish the agenda each week at the beginning of our time together. We can follow the New Street Compass pre-set agenda or discuss whatever you like. You may choose to work on caregiver topics or other personal topics. As an Independent Caregiver Trainer and certified coach, I am equipped to address most anything you wish.
Dementia Knowledge – Practical Skills
Whether your loved one has a diagnosis or not, the foundation for your dementia caregiver mentoring is understanding how dementia affects cognitive skills, what symptoms may appear, and how to navigate through when symptoms escalate for various reasons throughout the progression of dementia. We will look at this information in general but also more specifically to your situation.
