Wellness Coaching for Caregivers

Caregivers of the Elderly and People with Chronic Illnesses:

Coaching is an essential need for people caring for older loved ones who are often frail, disabled or coping with daily life challenges. It is vital to maintain optimal physical and mental health in order to carry out the many activities required by caregivers.

If you, as a caregiver, feel:

  • Overwhelmed
  • Sad or depressed
  • Angry
  • Helpless
  • Unable to "go on"

Then wellness coaching is the care YOU need to balance your life and help you while you so lovingly help others.

The major benefit of wellness coaching for caregivers is that it can be done via email and phone. This is especially beneficial for people who cannot leave loved ones for a long period of time. It offers the support you need, helps you cope better, have you feel less stressed and overwhelmed, all without compromising your caregiver responsibilities.

Parents and Caregivers of Children with Special Needs:

Often, parents and caregivers of children with special needs feel that their primary responsibility is to ensure the well-being of their child. While that is true, if the parent or caregiver isn’t caring of themselves and watching out for their own well-being, then their own health becomes compromised. Others in their lives (other children, relatives, spouses and significant others) can also feel as if their needs aren’t being met.

Parents and caregivers of children with special needs can also feel:

  • Overwhelmed
  • Frustrated that resources aren’t provided
  • Guilty
  • Sad or depressed
  • Irritated that people "don’t understand"
  • Angry
  • Helpless
  • Unable to "go on"

Wellness coaching can provide:

  • Help with balancing everyone’s needs including the parent/caregiver
  • Provide suggestions on ways to manage time and activities better
  • Offer helpful ways and resources to best manage caring for the child with special needs
  • Engage the parent or caregiver in a hopeful way to create a positive future for their chld and for themselves and their other loved ones
