Carer coaching is a structured programme designed for carers of people with dementia. It is tailored to your specific needs and concerns and will provide practical advice and tips to help you maintain your personal well-being whilst caring effectively for your loved one.
A person with dementia will be affected by how their carer approaches them. This will affect how the person feels and behaves, both in a positive and negative way.
If you as a carer are stressed or become short-tempered this will have a serious effect on the person with dementia you look after. They may get more anxious or depressed or may even start behaving in a more challenging way, which may make you as a carer feel guilty or upset. This is a common occurrence and our coaching service can help you to address this.
A personalised approach
We will help you identify what causes you stress and work out together how to address whatever is going on for you.
In the first session we will find out your specific circumstances and tailor the programme around them, so you will be able to get the most out of the programme.
