Circle of Care
One resource that a GCM can bring to a caregiving family is ,what Gail Sheehy calls a “circle of care” .This circle may be broken. To create this supportive connection, the GCM needs to use her or his GCMcoaching skills and put together a support system around the perhaps isolated and unsupported family caregiver. The care manager needs to reorganize the family, so adult siblings can share in the care of the older client .You the GCM are what Sheehy calls a “ compassionate coach” who can help the beleaguered caregiver attract and assemble a platform to keep on giving the care she or he wants to give the aging parent.
