“Having talked to Caitlin before hand was hugely helpful in us being more prepared for our conversation with the medical team, as well as for my husband talking directly with his mom about what she wanted. We’re very grateful for the timing of her presence in pulling us back from the edge.”

KELLY

You knew it wasn’t going to be easy caring for your parent, in-laws, grandparent, partner, or loved one.

But you probably didn’t expect:

3

You’d be caring for your toddler, working your day job, while also overseeing things with your mom (with dementia) from halfway across the country.

3

Every time the assisted living facility calls, your heart drops. 

3

You’d be grieving your dad, who’s physically still here, but a shell of what he was.

3

Your in-laws are in complete denial that their health is getting worse, and they refuse to talk about it.

3

Your wonderful friends don’t quite ‘get it’, and frankly it’s tiring to explain

3

When the Trader Joe’s cashier asks how you’re doing you tear up because you’re feeling it all – sadness, anger, joy, resentment, pride –  at the same time.

You’re tapped out.

Caregiver Coaching is new to me.

Can you really help?

YES!

Here’s what others have said 

down arrow copynew

Before coaching, it was hard to talk to friends & family about the logistics of caregiving, and I lacked knowledge about Long Term Care and Hospice Care.

With coaching, I’ve navigated the Indiana POST form, understood hospice, improved communication with our physician, prepared for emergencies, and can make decisions for my loved one through a structured process to meet our quality of life goals. 

I now have more confidence in myself, my plans, and my care team.”

“It’s a discussion, albeit a difficult one, but it helps you identify priorities and plan accordingly. You are not told what to do, you explore what’s important to you.“

Coaching Session

During the initial 1-hour coaching session, we'll help you figure out how your loved one wants to be cared for now, how to plan for the future, and how to get the support you need - both practical hands-on, and a judgment-free space to feel what you're feeling.

Personalized Action Plan

After the coaching session, we'll send your personalized action plan - highlighting the key elements of the coaching session and and your next steps. We'll also collaborate with your loved one's care team to keep them in the loop.

Follow Up Session

You and your coach will decide when the best time will be to schedule a follow-up coaching session to support you as you implement the action plan.

After the coaching session we want you to feel like you’ve got someone in your corner – who hears you, sees you, and is going to help advocate for your loved one.

It’s hard to find people that can make space for our issues & challenges, take the time to process and understand, and then provide useful and productive feedback to bring about positive changes. I don’t think I would have had the capacity to accomplish as much as I did with EpioneMD if I were by myself. Don’t go it alone; hire a coach

Who are the coaches?

We’re a team of 2 seasoned physicians, a compassionate social worker, and a soul-soothing chaplain with over  55+ years of combined experience empowering caregivers.

We’ve worked everywhere – from prestigious academic institutions to community hospitals, outpatient clinics, and in-home care.

Now, as we care for our own aging parents and in-laws, we’re facing the same struggle you are. 

We know how tough it is to dive into those important conversations, to have your loved one land in the hospital unexpectedly, to figure out what the heck you should be asking the medical team, to plan for the future, and to scramble to get more support. 

But, guess what? As experienced healthcare professionals, we’ve got the know-how to better guide our family and friends through the ins and outs of caregiving;  AND we’re spilling the beans and sharing our insider knowledge with you!

We’re dishing out our best tips and strategies so you can support your parents, in-laws, grandparents or partner as they age, smooth out the caregiving journey, and help you worry less. ✨

Here are the A’s to your Qs

Do you accept insurance?

Coaching is not covered by health insurance. This means our sessions are not rushed, you get the attention you deserve, and you won’t receive a surprise bill!

I'm part of a caregiver support group. Will coaching still help me?

You’re stretched thin and your time is precious – that’s why the entire session is devoted to you. Consider it part of your self-care!

No more rushing to get in your questions or having someone hijack the group and listen to them vent the entire time.  Instead, we’ll address your specific questions and create an action plan that leaves you feeling empowered. 

So yes, if you’re looking for tailored, personalized support, that’ll help you feel more confident, then coaching is for you!

I've got a lot on my plate and I'm exhausted. Can coaching really help me?

There’s no one more busy than a caregiver. You’re stretched thin.

That’s why it’s extra essential you take the time to make your life less stressful. 

Coaching can help you figure out what item on your “to-do” list can be streamlined or delegated. We’ll also make sure you and your loved one have a plan for whatever comes in the future. 

That way, you’ll get some peace of mind and will end up scrambling less. 

 

Will you fill out my health documents for me?

During your coaching session, it may become clear that your loved one will need specific documentation in a row – like their health care proxy form or advanced directives.

We’ll guide you step by step through the forms, engaging in heartfelt conversations about the crucial elements. Together, we’ll navigate and make decisions that truly honor your loved one’s wishes and values.

With this knowledge, you and your loved one can complete the forms at a time and place that feels right for both of you. 

While we won’t complete the forms on behalf of your loved one, we’ll empower you with the knowledge and support you need. 

Is caregiver coaching the same as therapy or psychotherapy?

Caregiver coaching is different from therapy or psychotherapy.

Therapy and psychotherapy are go-to support systems for tackling mental health challenges or addressing big relational and emotional issues, often focused on healing from the past. 

Coaching is all about helping you do better now and in the future as a caregiver. Our goal is to take you from ‘just okay’  to feeling confident you’ve got the know-how to be an even better caregiver. Plus, we’re all about doing it in a way that’s sustainable and puts YOU first.

Given the ups and downs of caregiving, lots of folks find coaching helpful in up-leveling their caregiving skills AND they’ll see a therapist to help them through depression, anxiety, or trauma.

Therapy and coaching are complementary – it’s like having a couple of nifty tools in your kit to tackle different aspects of your caregiving journey 🔥. 

 

Do you provide in-home, hands-on help?

Hands-on support is so important to helping you stay sane as a caregiver. We can help you identify when hands-on support would be useful, how to find in-home support, and important considerations. 

We’re not a home health agency, and we don’t provide in-home personnel.

 

Do you prescribe medications or work up symptoms?

As coaches, we focus on helping you up-level your caregiving skills and plan for the future. We do not prescribe medications, work up symptoms, or conduct medical assessments. 

If you've made it this far thenyou're ready for coaching!
