Caregiving tips and listener

5


5 per session Virtual OK

I've been a caregiver since I was a child and may have some helpful ideas for tricky interactions. I also understand it can be overwhelming at times and am happy to listen if you need to vent.

While I am expanding my perspective on the topic, there may be background noise and brief pauses since I'm solo providing for my children 24/7. I'm doing home based schooling with 5 of my kids this year.

Training & Qualifications


I grew up helping my slightly younger sister who had down syndrome, cognitive and speech deficits.

I'm a mother to a child very much like my sister, and another who is on the autism spectrum.

For a year and a half I was a live in care provider to a child with cerebal palsy I loved like a son.

The majority of my gainfully employed situations have been in geriatric care positions.

Currently I also get to have the experience of having spinal stenosis from degenerative disc disease and am recovering from an acl and meniscus reconstruction, so I guess I could comment from that angle too 😅

Availability & Preferences


Between 3pm-4pm, 6pm-8pm, and some mornings before 8 and evenings after 10.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Jaime is a true gem. Our conversation was enlightening and when it ended I felt inspired by her ideas and how she keeps her home in order and kiddos a...ll on the same page. She is a beautiful light in this world and I know there are great things to come.show more

Jaime's requests


Jaime is requesting
I guess I need interviewed
My therapist thinks I have repressed emotions about things I've been through. I think I'm pretty open but I guess I have teared up about things when she's pried. I suppose I need to have questions...

About Jaime Coats

I've overcome many obstacles in my life and look forward to overcoming many more. I've been through a variety of unusual life situations and have learned a good deal about healthy communication, co...ping with anxiety through personal will power, and resilience. In college I focused on child and family education. Other academic studies have included personal development, communication, critical thinking, ethics and psychology. Extra curricular activities include crafting, art, science, philosophy, and studying survivalism tactics I am an artist, a survivor, and a mother of 6, two of whom have delays. I've coped with loss after having outlived two children I was thoroughly invested in caring for; first my little sister, who was a year and a half younger than me and had down syndrome, then passed away at 17; second, a previous partner's 9 year old son who had cerebral palsy I did live-in care for over the course of a year and a half, until he passed when he was 11. I have a deep sense of protectiveness for children and people with delays. show more
