Has your live changed due to the role you play in caring for someone else?

Trained professionals in caregiving techniques, stress reduction strategies, and problem solving, assist caregiving individuals with issues that may be causing stress, health related issues, family issues, and difficulty for the caregiver in living and thriving while caring for someone.Individual consultations are provided for 4 or 5 sessions, resources are identified and action plans are initiated to help a caregiver cope with the stress of this important job.The cost of Caregiver Consulting is dependent upon gross household income. Services are available so please call today if you need help!
