I help caregivers be more efficient and effective while reclaiming some of their own lives.
I’m Darcy Thiel. What people say they appreciate most about me is my genuine nature. I utilize my professional and personal experiences to increase my understanding and compassion to help others. As a caregiver coach, I have developed a comprehensive program called "The Resilient Caregiver's Lifeline." It is the resource I wish I had had when I started caring for my mom, husband, and then father. I had to learn everything the hard way, through trial and error. Sometimes utter failure. Managing all the competing priorities of my life while navigating the broken systems we live with seemed impossible. This is a caregiver course you can purchase for a flat rate. You will gain knowledge about resources that our medical and legal systems will not provide for you and receive coaching about how to use them effectively. It is crucial to be a knowledgeable medical advocate. There will be a tremendous relief for you when you resolve insurmountable problems that you weren't initially equipped for. (Individual coaching hours are available if preferred.) Part of the program entails detailed instructions to assemble a portfolio that is essentially the caregiver's "bible". It will make a gigantic difference in the care your loved one receives, and also in the confidence you feel with the tremendous responsibilities you have. Managing medical paperwork and bills is super important. Secondly, there are live coaching zooms with caregivers from across the country. This is priceless because every caregiver knows that no one truly understands except another caregiver. Not to mention, your coach totally "gets it" as well. This is a tremendously helpful support group. Participants in the program will emphatically tell you that the knowledge, preparation, and organization they achieve have provided more positive outcomes for their loved ones. Combined with the emotional support they receive from me and other caregivers, their isolation is broken and they feel more human again. Please set up a consult if this sounds like the resource you have been looking for. We can schedule a brief 15-minute zoom to talk in more detail and see if we are a good fit together. I look forward to assisting you in your journey- the most difficult and most meaningful thing you will ever do.
Aging Life Care
Although a therapist for almost 30 years, my expertise comes more from having been the primary caregiver for both my parents and my husband. It's not my formal education that impacts folks, but the fact that I have truly been there. I GET IT!
