Caregiving support or advice

25


25 per session Virtual OK

Care giving for strangers can be taxing emotionally, physically, psychologically & spiritually. and more so for loved ones.

It is also bewildering & frustrating to navigate the crazy world of healthcare, doctors & other legalities in the current era.

Do you know when you've hit a limit with your exhaustion or a boundary when someone tries to guilt you into something when you are already beyond your capacity?

I have a couple decades experience caregiving housemates, family members & strangers. I've also volunteered & counseled many of my friends & relatives when they were struggling with caregiving. There are some local & internet resources but one of the more useful things is your own capacity to stay in balance.

I can help you stay in balance & refer you to additional resources for help & info.

Training & Qualifications


5 years of residential care giving
5 plus years of practical & emotional support & running workshop & suuport groups during the AIDS epidemic in San Francisco
5 years of working in front line social service nonprofits
a lifetime of recovery

I am the worst. Marty was there ready. He sent me materials and was communicative from the first message when I proposed a deal. I lost track of time ...at work and missed our appointment. I hope he will give me another chance and I’m completing this deal because he did it was my fault that I didn’t show up. Sorry about that! show more
