To further be able to help people impacted by neurological illness, Abbe became an integrative health coach. This certification allows her to support those who become a care partner and find themselves feeling burned out, alone, guilty, frightened, or less healthy and well.
Abbe created a program that focuses on the pillars of CONNECTING, DISCOVERING, and COMMITTING to oneself so that the role of care partner is only part of who you are. Personalized programs center around balancing your role, finding alone time, and learning that health and nutrition are more than the food you eat.
Neurological illness does not just affect the person who has it. Everyone in the person's life is impacted and it is important that care partners' needs are acknowledged.
What makes ICOMMUNICARE's Health Coaching unique?
Abbe Simon's career as a speech language pathologist has allowed her to see first hand the enormous need of care partners. When a loved one receives an often sudden, neurological diagnosis, their life changes too.
A communication disorder has the potential to dramatically alter the ability to have conversations and share information with other people. In addition to the need for discovering new ways to communicate with their loved one, care partners may experience the following:
- financial stress
- sleep deprivation
- jealousy of others
- the need to scream, shout, run away
Becoming a care partner may be a role someone has prepared to do. It can also happen in an instant and require immediate attention. ICOMMUNICARE offers care partners the ability to learn new ways of communicating and connecting with their loved one. Simultaneously, care partners are given the opportunity to discover ways to find more balance in their life without feeling judged or guilty.
ICOMMUNICARE Health Coaching helps clients reveal areas in their life that need more attention and that health does not only involve proper nutrition.
