Coaching program for caregivers

Order the book here

This practical book is based on the Mantelkracht coaching program, which helps practitioners to enhance the abilities of informal caregivers.

The program has five pillars:

  • Meeting regularly and for a long time
  • Combination of group and individual sessions
  • Maintaining a positive and appreciative approach
  • Listening to the caregivers' needs
  • Offering a diverse range of activities.

The objective of this publication is to supplement the Mantelkracht coaching program, enabling informal caregivers to deliver higher-quality care to both themselves and the people they care for.
