Care Partner Coaching
Family and care partner coaching is a service designed to empower care partners with an arsenal of tools, strategies, and aids to address everyday challenges. At Align Speech Therapy, our goal is to ease the burden and challenges faced by families and care partners through the implementation of personalized tools and strategies. Examples of goals we may focus on include:
increasing safety in the home
increasing your loved one’s participation in activities of daily living
creating graphic aids to help loved ones with memory impairments
teaching supportive communication techniques to help your loved one with aphasia
developing strategies for a loved one to minimize undesired behaviors
Care partner coaching is ideal for any care partners of a loved one with communication, cognition, memory, and/or swallowing challenges that impact everyday activities and challenge the care partner's ability to provide care and support.
During our initial session we will have a conversation and ask questions to complete an informal assessment of your and your loved one's needs, goals, and expectations. Following the initial session, we will make recommendations for follow-up sessions in order to help the family and care partner develop confidence in using the tools and strategies recommended.
