About Kathleen

Over 18 years experience as a massage therapist, specializing in pain relief and accidents, injuries, sports massage, geraitric massage, pre and post surgical massage for reconstuction and m/or augmentation, liposuction and tummy tucks. Spent the last 5 years taking care of my dad who was a stroke survivor with aphasia, and was hemiplegic. Massaged him often to ease nerve pain and very painful contractions from the spastic muscles in his arm and leg. He has both spastic and flaccid paralysis. Massage can be so beneficial to our loved ones in their final days. My rates listed are for massage, however, I can do caretaking as listed and it would be a different rate. As a masage therapist, I habe been regular fingerprinted and had a thorough police department background check.

    Very hardworking. Willing to learn take time and understand client's needs and care. Very respectful. I grew up taking care of my grand parents and tending to adults and kids around me. So it comes to me naturally to assist and put smiles on people's face giving them the comfort and care they need.

    $22.00/hour · Oakdale, CA
    I began my caregiving career as a skilled CNA in a nursing home at the Care Center in Oakdale. Once I perfected my skills and with the proper work-methods, I resumed my work ethics at Oak Valley Hospital in the Rehabilitation Center; and was promoted by The Director of Nursing to a RNA position ( Restorative Nursing Assistant) working directly with professionals such as PT, PTA, Speech Specialists, RNs and Doctors. It was my absolute pleasure to see my patients regain their health and return home to loved ones. With my acquired experience and knowledge, great compassion and kindness, I became an independent caregiver and have worked as a private caregiver for over 15 yrs. I love what I do. I have met many wonderful clients and family loved ones; and graciously, I have received many letters of recognition. Through my caregiving process, I have worked diligently along side Hospice, applying my nursing skills to bring comfort to dying patients. My goal is to bring a quality of life to my clients with much joy and with a compassion filled with gentle kindness. Please see letters of recommendation and summaries of some of my caregiving positions below.
