Hello! I'm Sandra Durbin 'The CareGivers Coach'
I love working with families, helping them to figure out the maze, putting all the pieces together to find just the right options for their loved ones. Every family is their own unique puzzle, some of the pieces look the same as other families but they don’t quite fit together in the same way. My passion is putting together the right pieces in the right way for your family’s needs.
Sandra has been working with families and their aging parents for over 20 years. With a degree in Psychology, a background in medical social work, and experience with a wide range of creative options, she has successfully helped hundreds of families move “from Chaos-to-Calm”… often negotiating tense situations that occur when your loved one is in crisis. Sandra’s engaging and understanding personality will help your family communicate and make informed decisions while working with other professionals to form a clear action plan that will let you feel comfortable with some of life’s most important decisions
Read some great stories.
Sandra is an extremely knowledgeable consultant in the senior health care arena. She is familiar with all the latest trends and facilities and can guide your family to make the right decisions for your loved ones. Because she has worked with so many families to find the right answers for them, she is very compassionate and caring when dealing with families. I wish I had known her when I was making decisions about my mother. Her direction would have saved time and frustration. –
Dear Sandra ~
I want to thank you so very much for all your kind assistance while I was looking for the proper home for my sister.
Alzheimer’s is a terrible disease and you were such a compassionate listener. You were so kind and understanding. You listened and gave me good feedback. You were patient with my repeat calls for additional information. You considered mine and my sister’s situation and advised me accordingly. You followed up with me periodically and then one day you called me before I called you – God had answered my prayers! It was Sandra calling – just when I needed you most!
Due to our circumstances, it has been a long time coming that I have finally made the decision to move my sister. You were still there waiting for me to come to the decision you knew I would one day make – you didn’t give up on me. And while I care for my sister, you have coached me through some very difficult situations and issues.
Thank you Sandra! I appreciate you so much and hope we can continue to stay in contact.
My very best,
Create your success story!
