COACH ME STRONG

Informational Meeting
Monday, January 11, 11:00AM

Meet the Coach Me Strong founders and discover if an individualized exercise coaching program is right for you.

If you have Parkinson’s Disease you MUST exercise. Coach Me Strong gives you a one-on-one exercise program, designed just for you, and a coach to guide you every day.

We will describe how the program works, answer your questions, and introduce you to some of the team. Click here for the coachmestrong.com website.

The Respite Well is a program that Coast Care Partners offers in conjunction with the County of San Diego.

Two items that must be met to qualify for Respite Well are:
1) The individual must suffer from some form of cognitive impairment.
2) There must be a family member, friend, or neighbor who is the primary caregiver and is exhibiting some sort of stress- mental, emotional, spiritual, etc.

If the individual meets those simple qualifications, they reach out to us and we get their paperwork initiated. Currently, there is a 2-3 week waiting list for these services.

Under this program, the county covers half of the cost of our caregiving services, which brings the price down to $15.74/hour for the consumer.

If the main caregiver would like additional home caregiving hours, we can provide those, too.  We can initiate with our conventional program, at our regular rate, then back off or supplement with the Respite Well discounted rate.

Resources for Veteran Caregivers

Caregivers will now be included in Veterans’ health care teams, VA Secretary Wilkie announced on October 19 as part of the Inclusive Care Program.

The Elizabeth Dole Foundation also offers no-cost, short-term aid from at-home care professionals to help with bathing, cooking, exercising, transportation, and companionship, among other tasks. Caregivers in every state can now apply for no-cost professional caregiver support made possible through the cooperation and donations of CareLinx, Wounded Warrior Project, AARP, and VA.
