About Kay

I am a mature, experienced, responsible, kind caregiver. I have a lot of experience with Seniors with Dementia and Parkinson's. I can take care of physical requirements, as well as cook and keep everything fresh and organized. I can drive to appointments, and generally encourage and facilitate getting out and about, or having visitors. I am a cheerful person and an empathetic listener. I have a Masters Degree in Psychology which helps me to understand the psychological strain of ageing and ageing related diseases.
