Care Partner Support

Rooted in Community,
We Serve Together and for Each Other.

Care Partner Support

MY APPROACH: As someone who once held this role, I know the first sting and subsequent numbness that your job may cause. You should never be left alone, without an advocate or a listening ear. We deserve places where we can talk about our role, what we need, what we desire, and what causes the greatest amount of stress and anxiety about our job, without the uncertainty of approaching HR, our manager, or others on our team. I seek to provide you with the tools you need to live fully alive as you serve those in your care.

Professional care partners working for a community or organization deserve support, community, and 3-dimensional life to live fully alive. You deserve someone to accompany you both during your time as a care partner and after that role has ended.

Easy Actions to Take Today

Don’t Silo Your Teams

Don’t silo the teams and departments within your organization. Allow for engagement to encompass the entire staff volunteers and even the families of the residents.

Look For Skills over Masters

When you hire an Actives Director look not at the highest degree or number of certifications, instead, look at both the formal and informal education they have received (this includes being a family care partner) and ask beautiful questions about what each person can offer the community and their dreams for their place in the role.

Everything is Communication

Just as we say that all behavior is a form of communication when working with someone with dementia, so is true for your staff and co-workers.

Go Outside

Find time during each shift to go outside – even if it is raining or snowing. Even if it is for 5 breaths, it can do wonders to help you navigate the challenges of providing care.
