– What are the benefits of applying the coach in the field of azlhiemer’s disease?
The greatest benefit is uniformity in delivering services to this population. Examples is how to speak Alzheimer’s, history of dementia, how to deal with difficult situations, and best practices, services and optimal health for those living with dementia, to give you a few examples.
– Who would be the recipient of the coach, the patient or their family members?
The family first because they are the first to deal with the care of someone they love who has been diagnosed with a form of dementia. The health professionals such as the doctors, nurses, administrators who provide care to such patients. They will know what to say to families and the patients. They will also learn how to best provide services and include the family as part of the care team. The coach is experienced in all aspect of dementia care and therefore is able to support/guide the family, the professionals, and the community. – Are there different applications of the coach depending on the type or severity of dementia? Yes. The coach is aware of all stages and able to encourage others to remain flexible, adaptable and helpful to the end of life.

Coach training is done online and in a virtual environment (see application attached to give you an idea). Internships are done in the region of the world where the participant resides and consists of two separate internships: basic and advanced. I hope I have answered your questions.
