A MESSAGE FROM BRENDA
I believe that there is strength in knowledge and that is exactly what Coaching for Caregivers Canada is here to do!
Hi! My name is Brenda Blais Nesbitt and I have been a caregiver for over 27 years, caring for my child who is severely physically disabled, developmentally delayed, technologically dependent and medically fragile.
I understand first-hand the stresses we face on a daily basis navigating the healthcare system, community, and education systems. At times, caregiving can be an incredibly arduous and isolating experience regardless of your perspective. Stemming from many moments of trying to stay inspired, remain positive, be the best version of myself for my daughter, and make decisions with love rather than fear, I began professionally advocating for caregivers and those with special needs. Years of healthcare experience has reinforced my commitment to preserving patient dignity and respecting confidentiality.
With certification in life coaching and caregiver consulting, along with 17 years in medical administrative and research roles, I’ve fostered a strong work ethic, compassionate customer service, a high-degree of interpersonal and organizational skills, professionalism and tact. All of which are qualities I harness to be the best-possible caregiver and advocate I can be.
As your caregiver coach, I am here to guide you through your ups and downs, empower you to maneuver the system, help you engage with medical professionals with confidence, help you find the positives anywhere you can, and help you find time for you without guilt. I will inspire you to embrace the life you have been chosen for and create the one for which you want to live.
As your coach, I have your back...always...with love.
