About Kathy

1. I feel that it is my gift and my calling, and I want to use my talents to bless others. 2. At the end of the day, I feel accomplished if I've helped those around me who need me to be there for them whether it be an emotional or physical need. 3. One of my biggest achievements and joys was being able to be there with both of my parents at the end of their lives to provide the loving care and meet their every need. Something I will always be proud of is the fact that neither of my parents had to be taken care of by anybody but their daughter. 4. I am a woman who loves to be with her family. I enjoy cooking, gardening, hiking and spending time with my daughters. I am always looking to learn new things because I have a strong belief that it's important to keep learning to stay young. One of my learning adventures included becoming a state certified ombudsman and using that talent to visit local nursing facilities. The more I spend time in these nursing homes, the more I want to help the elderly be able to stay in their homes and receive care in their own environment.

Dedicated, compassionate, and experienced in providing exceptional care, I am a caregiver who values the bonds built with clients, remaining loyal and supportive to many of them even until their passing. My natural empathy and strong listening skills have allowed me to adapt to the unique needs of each individual I've worked with, while my genuine passion for caregiving was sparked by the opportunity to make a positive difference in people's lives. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is the ability to build deep, meaningful connections with clients and their families, and witnessing the profound impact that attentive, personalized care can have on their well-being and happiness.
