About Kendall - Personal Coach for Senior Citizens
As a senior myself, I recognize the value and importance of feeling comfortable and independent each day. Most seniors want to continue living in their own homes as they age, and I’m here to help. I'm Kendall Van Blarcom, Personal Coach for older adults and seniors. Kendall is also the founder of Van Blarcom Consulting. My business uniquely serves seniors, caregivers, and other individuals in multiple ways.
As a wellness coach for seniors, I offer both phone consultation and house calls to help mature adults with various issues. I can help you get to the root of and manage anxiety, irritability, trouble sleeping, fatigue, and other common complaints.
I offer my services as a wellness coach for seniors to virtually anyone who needs a Patient Ear or a sounding board. You may not necessarily need mental health therapy to deal with everyday problems or to feel heard and understood. That's where my service as a Personal coach for senior citizens comes in. You don't even need to live in my geographic service area to receive my help. Nor do you need to leave your home or even change out of your pajamas. Working with a wellness coach for seniors remotely makes it so easy for you to start feeling better. With multiple appointment options available, including phone and online appointments, we can talk any time that’s convenient for you.

Phone and Online Coach for Retirement Years
As a personal coach for senior citizens, I continue to serve my local clients in the Santa Rosa area. Recently, I’ve evolved away from being a traditional wellness coach for seniors and towards providing virtual services, either by phone or online chat. Technology offers an easy way to reach clients wherever they are in another city, state, or even country. I provide coaching for all English speaking adults throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Virtual coaching offers a level of convenience, privacy, and affordability that office sessions can't match. It also enables me to reach out to seniors and the housebound who might not otherwise be able to access my help. Now, all you need is a telephone or computer to access your personal coach!
For those in need of house calls with a personal coach for senior citizens, I do still offer house calls in my local area. I service Santa Rosa and surrounding areas in Sonoma County, including Rohnert Park, Oakmont, Larkfield-Wikiup, Cotati, and Sebastapol. You can schedule your appointment from the House Calls page or contact me at 707-888-2013.
The Advantages of Working with a Peer: Kendall Van Blarcom
As you now know, I'm a senior myself who's come to know the challenges and joys of aging. Through my journey, I've discovered the lighter side of life that brings confidence, happiness, and a carefree attitude. Now I'm excited to share that feeling with you and help you reach that place.
As a seasoned practitioner and mental health advocate, I’ve seen the positive impacts my services have on my clients and their lives. Now, as a coach for retirement years, I'm able to helpfully bridge the gap between a person’s family members and their medical specialists and aid in areas that might otherwise be overlooked. Offering personal support as a personal coach for senior citizens allows me to make a more significant impact. I can help to improve multiple aspects of life for my clients, thereby reducing their daily stress and anxiety.
My clients tell me I'm easy to talk to, a good listener, and a gentle person they can relate to and trust. I hope you'll feel the same.
You’ve made it this far along your path to a brighter and more relaxed future. Now take the next step and contact me, Kendall Van Blarcom, to find out how I can help you get the most out of your life! I look forward to hearing from you.
