About Catherine

I became a caregiver so that I could help those who cannot help themselves. I find pleasure in hearing someone tell me I'm a Godsend, or thank me everyday for what I do. I became a caregiver after my mother fell ill with Lupus and Fibromyalgia. I care for her everyday, as well as my clients. I do not have any formal training; in other words, I am not a CNA or RN. But I am an HCA, certified in California. I have experience with Alzheimer's and Dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, and motor vehicle accidents. I will clean, cook, remind the client of their medications when it's time to take them, bathe the client(s), and just give them an all around good experience and keep them company. I've even been known to play games with them to keep their minds off of things (especially with dementia patients). I'd prefer not to do hospice work, though I have limited experience. I will always take great care of your loved one, and I'll always be on time and ready to work with a smile and a warm hello.

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.

Caring for elderly is my passion I have done home care and rehab centers in my past for family and friends for about 10 years. I love working with elderly it makes me feel like I'm not at work and I'm able to have more of a connection with my clients then at a care facility . I cherish all of my clients like if they were my own family members
