Caesi Bevis is the Founder/ Principal of Crisis Coaching. She is a Professional Writer, Speaker, Trainer, Content Creator, Futurist. Caesi offers over 23 years’ experience working with people with disabilities, case managers, and caregivers. As President and Executive Director of nonprofit organizations, she has served on boards for a period of over ten years. About 50% of the nonprofit members were seniors.
As a Healthcare Lobbyist, Caesi was often called upon to answer elected government official behests, and has sat on national, provincial and city forums and committees addressing how best to “fix” gaps in services or to create trifecta support partnerships between private companies and community needs. Additionally, Caesi was “on call” as an “Expert Witness” for court systems in British Columbia and the U.S. for expert opinions on mental and physical health disability, as well as senior issues, and protection of rights, access to treatment, and right to quality of life.
Since May 2010, Caesi has been researching and developing the (Healthcare) Crisis Coaching training and consulting on seniors issues for adult children. Crisis Coaching is a national and cross-border program, with Canada, which trains adult children on “aging parent issues."
Caesi Bevis is drafting the Bevis Physical and Mental Healthcare Federal Reform Billfor intended presentation to Congress. Ms. Bevis offers strong experience in federal and state regulatory compliance, HIPAA, privacy laws, and other regulations, as well as knowledgeable on private insurance, HMO, PPO, and Medical / Medicare, as well as SSA, SSI and SSDI issues. In the past year, she has been investigating local Title XXVI compliance and local fining procedures related to assisted living facilities. She has a “strong concern” because presently there is no way to publically / official record “positive comments” on residential care facilities with licensing and fining bodies.
Small Business Owner Experience
As a small business owner, Caesi Bevis “has worn many hats:” Her strength is "codifying" - creating systems, and analyzing vasts amounts of data and seeing patterns for influence and being able to forecast or create an "early warning signal" for perfect storms that are brewing when situations are colliding.
For example: She sees the U.S., and Canada, on a collision course since government is not providing the additional supports needed by families to care for seniors and elderly trying to age in place in their own homes. Both governments are ignoring that adult daughters today are often holding down more than one job, or are heads of households; they are no longer available to go move back home and in with aging mother or father as a caregiver. The adult sons are also not available for similar reasons. "You cannot tell people to age in place" - then "not give them the services to do so. Our populations are getting older, not younger. We have to provide the services or else we will continue to see severe impact on businesses as more and more employees have to leave a job to take care of parents."
