Millions of adults are now in the role of caregiving for their elder family members or partners. Caregiving can be a role you choose or a role you assume when no one else is able or willing to step in. Today many are caregiving for several generations at once or caregiving while also fulfilling a career outside the home. It is demanding and stressful and yet holds the possibility of also being rich with rewards, growth, and love.
Reasons you might consider working with a caregiver coach include:
- You are feeling overwhelmed by the demands and responsibilities.
- You are feeling alone making key decisions of care.
- You are experiencing a sense of loss or anxiety as you live with your loved one’s decline.
- You are struggling to find the time or energy to take care of yourself or
frustrated that your needs are being pushed aside.
As your coach I will first reassure you that you are not alone. I will listen to your story and guide you as you identify your needs, find resources for support, develop self-compassion and self care, and gain an appreciation for the strengths and gifts you bring to your caregiving role.
Are you one of the millions of adults now taking care of both children and elders? Or perhaps you are caregiving while also trying to manage a career or suddenly caught between your caregiving role and your life as you knew it.
To a large degree developmental theories have not caught up with this reality of our times as many people find themselves struggling through a life phase that entwines parenthood with caring for parents. For some parents just as the “empty nest” phase is on the horizon, the nest is filled with those elders in our lives who are living longer. For others just when one is ready to settle into a full career or perhaps enjoy some new freedoms, the caregiving needs arise. These demands may also arrive at a time of physical and psychological change. Caregiving from the middle is demanding, stressful, and emotional.
A five-week group will offer a safe and supportive place to share this journey with other caregivers. We will address your whole being as you are in this phase of life and explore strategies for taking care of yourselves physically, emotionally, and intellectually. Through reflection, teachings from the latest scientific research on managing stress and building resilience, and an introduction to practices you will discover your strengths, fill your “toolbox”, and find more balance in your life.
Join others to consider the possibility of not merely surviving your caregiving role but growing in strength and finding new hope.
