Serving older adults is my passion and my vocation. I consider myself a life-enrichment care partner and truly feel I am in a place of honor when spending time with those I serve. In the past 9 years, I have served older adults in various settings: those living with a variety of health conditions and physical/cognitive abilities . I listen well and nurture trusting relationships based on respect and dignity. Through my work experience in activities, as a Community Companion, and in my Gerontology studies, I have become more sensitive to the challenges facing a diverse population of older adults and am keenly aware of the damaging effects of isolation. I am committed to serve each individual and partner with them to experience joy and success in their daily life. I practice person-centered approach to address the mental, social, spiritual, and physical well-being of every individual. I am compassionate, flexible, creative, have a strong moral and work ethic, a warm and cheerful personality, and a great sense of humor. I have earned the Basic Activity Director Certificate, an Introduction to Guardianship Certificate, as well as completed Hospice Basic Training I & II. I am certified in American Red Cross First Aid/CPR/AED and I have an Oregon Food Handlers certificate. I can help with domestic duties including light cleaning, laundry, meal planning/prep, assist with appointment scheduling, transportation, shopping, and running errands. I can assist with bathing, offer companionship throughout the day, can engage individuals in meaningful conversations and activities based on their interests whether in-home or out in the community. I am willing to assist with specialty projects, home organizing, light gardening, and event planning. Thank you for considering me. All the best, Kim
