Family Support Specialist
Dealing with chronic illness can be an overwhelming life experience. We are here to help you and your family cope with the many challenges that these life changes present. Our family support specialist is a certified behavioral therapist with specific certification in dementia care. She is a positive motivator who works with caregivers and patients to set goals and provide support to ensure each person’s optimum health and well-being.
A typical visit with our family support specialist may last for one to two hours, a plan is developed and the need for follow-up visits is determined. Often only one visit is required to get things ‘back on track’.
Reasons to consider the services of a family support specialist:
• You are feeling overwhelmed by your illness
• You are having trouble maintaining a positive mood
• You are not motivated to ‘get out of bed’ or follow a daily routine
• You are not interested in the ‘fun things’ that used to make life worthwhile
