Identify goals, learn new skills toward relief and
An initial in-home visit is our opportunity to get to know one another, and typically runs 1-2 hours. Through engaging in a typically daily activity, you and your loved one get to know me, and I’ll begin to map opportunities to enhance ease and connection for your daily living together. We will begin looking at how to interact with your loved one in ways that create more success and moments of connection for both of you.

These support days focus on specific care partnering challenges. A compassionate, creative and skillful coach will observe then practice new skills with you which will ease daily living.
With a skillful and compassionate second person with you for a day you can get some relief, be heard, share what successes you’ve found and what challenges you most, and maybe even sit down for a bit. While there, we will be observing and trying out engagement options and sensory stimulation, building a personalized plan for moving forward. Through music, scent, touch and other modalities, we will provide new options for increasing positive behaviors and mitigating difficult times. We will also provide the caregiver(s) with a personalized plan for certain daily activities (typically called ADLs or activities of daily living) and how to make them easier by increasing willingness through understanding, and learning to move through necessary activities more agreeably.
Many of our well-intended actions may also trigger someone with dementia in ways we do not realize at first. Our compassionate second set of eyes will help identify small refinements a care partner can make in order to increase understanding, leading to easier cooperation and providing comfort to their loved one.

Workshops & Classes
We will personalize an interactive learning session for your group – personal, professional or community. If you have been navigating dementia caregiving for minutes or years, we can meet you where you are and together enhance opportunities for enjoyable moments of connection, ease of ADLs and the vital piece – self-care to enable the difficult work to be done from a place of love, empathy and kindness toward ourselves and our loved ones.
