About Kelly

My name is Kelly and I am a Freelance Writer/Poet. I became my fathers live in caregiver after he had a stroke. We were told that he would never walk or talk again by his doctors, a statement that was very hard to swallow. That was six years ago. He not only walks, but rides his motorcycle :) Being there with my father along his journey has been such a rewarding experience in so many ways. It has taught me many things, and I have learned a lot of valuable life lessons along the way. Overall, it was a reminder that love, kindness and compassion sincerely make all the difference.

I became a full time live in caregiver for my father after he had a stroke six years ago. A typical day would consist of cooking, bathing, cleaning, administering medication, driving him to doctors appointments and shopping a few times a week. It has not been an easy six years, but I do have to say it has been the most rewarding journey I have experienced.

Hello, Although I have a career in the operating room during the week .....I have found my passion in making a tremendous difference in the quality of a person's life with caregiving. I get a couple of days off during the week I volunteer with the Healthcare Ministry at my home church. Therefore I would only be available on Saturday for weekend care. I am a blessed mother to 4 amazing grown children and a grandmother x2. My grandparents played a tremendous role in my life (whom I also cared for at the end of their long lives) and I have always been very comfortable with mature, elderly, and geriatric people. I have found it to be an absolutely joyful and rewarding experience to be a Caregiver. I am honest, compassionate and extremely patient. Very detail oriented and trustworthy. I am hardworking, dedicated, dependable and honest. I enjoy caring for someone as well as doing activities together. Depending on the person and his/her interests. I enjoy connecting and listening to amazing stories that the person I am caring for wants to share. It is very important for me to stay engaged with the individual and showing them that they matter, rather than just turning on the TV for long periods of time. I believe if possible, it is important to keep the person socially connected and out in the community. (Varies with each individual depending on special needs or limitations) Thanks so much for taking the time to read my profile and I look forward to caring for you or your loved one. *DISTANCE IS NOT AN OBSTACLE *Live Scanned/Finger Printed *CPR/BLS Certification
