About Kelly

I love working as caregiver/medical field because I have so much love and compassion for people that is how I suceed in what I do. I realize there is some many rewards and gifts in this line of work. What I enjoy the most is meeting people and hearing about their life and experiences they have live, because everybody always has a unique story to tell. The joy you bring to their lives and the appreciation they feel. The most personal achievement I am most proud of was opening my own successful Adult Assisted living for 4 mental ill adults at 24 years old and having no idea how to run a business. I was well known in the community and was respected by the licensing committee for my excellent work. I kepted that Assisted Living open for almost 10 years. Having that business was where my passion was for caring for people. It taught me how to advocate for people that were not capable of advocating for themselves. I was their voice and that is how I was able to earn respect with people I worked with. Today is why I am so thankful and I am able to soar in my work today.

Private Caregiver

Jan 2007 - Present
Private in-home caregiver
I have been currently working 12 years with a lady that has multiple sclerosis. I started out just working 40 hrs a week,but as her disease advanced she needed more care. so I am a live-in. My job includes; bowel and incontinent care,medication dispensing,meal preparations,feeding,dressing and showering,medical appointments, daily documentation, light cleaning duties,grocery shopping, use of hoyer lift( total transfer assist),and cueing( memory issues). There are so many more things I do, but I feel the things I mentioned were the most Important. * A special little note: this client has been my pride and joy for the last 12 years. We have seen each other's changes. I have seen her disease progress and more personal things that even her own family has not see or experienced. She has seen me get more grey hair and knows me better than my family. She is my family! I can honestly say this job has been the toughest,most challenging,rewarding,saddest and above all the best job I have ever had!
