What is Coach4Care?
Anyone who is caring for a loved one who is dying learns a lot about how to care. What is challenging is sustaining energy and resilience throughout the caring journey so people can give the best possible care to their loved ones. Coach4care helps caregivers through coaching to help them reflect on their situation and take action to improve their well-being and the well-being of those they care for. Caregivers are believed to know their situation best; that they will learn best from reflecting on their own experience rather than being given advice. They also have the best chance of coming up with solutions that will work for them and our coaches are there to help unlock the answers within them.
