1. When can ELDERWISE Coaching help
When you and/or your family feel frustrated, overwhelmed or “stuck”, coaching provides clarity, structure, resources, options and an action plan.
You can get help with urgent situations before they become crises.
Coaching helps when you know important decisions must be made – about health, housing, caregiving, legal or financial matters – but you can’t seem to make headway. We’ll help you learn what you need to do, as well as how to do it most effectively…with and for everyone concerned.
2. Is coaching similar to counseling?
The short answer is “not really”. COUNSELING provides relief from emotional or mental health problems, or helps to improve relationships affected by these problems. COACHING is more like an advisory service. However, the coaching process does promote and preserve your mental well-being because it delivers information, support and practical tools.
Coaching guides everyone involved toward the best results. It shows you better ways of managing the tasks at hand, while building and preserving relationships – whether it’s amongst family, private service providers or health care professionals.
Coaching helps everyone move forward, equipped with new knowledge, insight and skills to create “shared solutions” with everyone concerned. Often, it takes only one meeting for you to get on track.
3. Who should participate?
Any family member can participate. Depending on the situation, a single family member, siblings, or adult children and their parents attend the meeting.
4. What results can we expect?
Clients say they leave a coaching meeting with more knowledge and a new understanding of their options. They feel relief, get a new sense of direction, and have an action plan to implement at their own pace.
