Advanced care or accessibility planning for aging clients
I am a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS). I completed the Fall Prevention Curriculum and knowledgeable regarding Incapability Process under the Adult Guardianship Act that gives legal protecting to our vulnerable adults. I am also trained as an End of Life Doula that assist with conversations around advance care planning grief and death.
Since 2010 I have been involved in custom renovations and installation and servicing of home medical equipment for people with disabilities and aging at home. Accessibility and fall prevention is a priority to keep seniors independent and safe at home. I do a comprehensive home evaluations of their functional space measured over a foreseeable time frame of independence or within the context of a chronic illness or disability. I recommend specific phased renovations or home adaptations that will enhance the client and the care giver's safety and comfort. I work around budgets and provide information regarding possible grants or external funding.
My interest has shifted slightly away from the hands on practical custom renovations, to having more conversations around what is important for each client. Often it is the wish for a better relationship with their children or some deeper hurt that needs addressing, rather than the lack of grab bars in the washroom. The desire to make amends and set things right.
These personal and very private restorative conversations I find very rewarding although it is not an easy journey as the "scars of life" are often very deep.
