Care Full Heart Coaching–Caring for the Caregiver
Practical and Emotional Support
for individuals and families involved in caring for their elders
by Karen Fuller Reg. N. Certified Life Coach, Caregiver Coach
You have become a Caregiver. . .
You look at providing this care as a labour of love, a way of returning a lifetime of your parents’ own devotion and care, a testimonial to your noble core values and beliefs . . .
And yet, you often find yourself exhausted, powerless and persecuted, a victim of jealousy, resentment, and sibling conflict, struggling with guilt, failure, depression and loss of control.
How can doing something good, end up feeling so bad? It’s OKAY to seek solutions to these unforeseen issues. It’s okay to seek support.
You do NOT have to live like this. You are resourceful, capable of finding the best way to provide the most effective elder support, and still maintain your own life balance. You can triumph over the inevitable anxiety, fear, and overwhelm.
A complimentary 30 minute Caring Compass Support Call is exactly what you need.
Effective services are also available to benefit employers, government and non-profit associations, as well as the healthcare community.
“There is information and salvation here for you. I will help you move through the denial, the depression, the anger and resentment, through the use of coping skills and strategies designed to relieve the stress, the guilt, treat the caregiver “burn out”, and ultimately resolve sibling conflict, and intra family communication roadblocks.
I will aid you in navigating government bureaucracy, and the intricacies of the health care community to ensure you attain the relevant knowledge, the emotional acceptance, the life balance and empowerment necessary to carry out an effective care plan for your loved ones.” –Karen Fuller
“When I somehow found myself my “father’s keeper” when he was recovering from a bout with cancer in his eighties, I was not prepared for the immensity of the commitment, the intensity of the guilt and self sacrifice, nor the outside interference from critical family members unwilling to help themselves, but perfectly able to undermine every aspect of the care plans I tried to put in place.
At first I was confident that I, as a competent career woman and excellent multi-tasker, could easily take on the co-ordination of my father’s affairs, housing needs and healthcare provision in the face of any adversity, but, over the years, I realized I was becoming depressed, unhappy, not to mention stressed to the max, turning myself inside out for my father, but completely neglecting my business, my relationships and my own self care.
Working with Karen helped me realize that, not only was it neither selfish nor shameful to put myself first, it was actually a necessity!!!! I learned I am of no use to others when I am feeling sadness, anger and resentment. I encourage anyone in the elder care giving role to reach out, no matter what anyone else says or thinks, reach out to Karen and seek support NOW! You owe it to yourself and your loved ones.” A.J. Campbell
