Hi my name is Kim and I have provided safe, honest, and compassionate care to seniors for 25 years. Above all else I offer you peace of mind when it comes to your loved one. I have experience in home health, assisted living, and private pay homes. Please view my profile for the services I offer. I'm available part-time, 9 am - 2 pm ( 9:30 - 2:30 if outside of Smithville up to 25 miles away) Beginning September I plan to extend my hours to 3 or 4 pm.
In 1981, when I was a five-year-old child, my mother became gravely sick with an illness her doctors could not diagnose. She often spent four to five months at a time in the hospital, recover enough to come home, but would fall ill again and again with no explanations. This went on for approximately seven years. During the time my mom was home my two sisters, brother, and I did everything we could to make her comfortable that we were capable of doing as children. Yet, seeing my mom in pain and so much discomfort instilled within me a tremendous sense of empathy and compassion. Despite the short periods of time she spent at home between hospitalizations, I developed a deep sense of appreciation for my mother because I missed her terribly. Thankfully, she finally came home and the relief was immense. My grandmother lived with us for 15 years due to her deteriorating health as a result of diabetes, cataracts, loss of hearing, and the loss of the ability to clothe and prepare her own food. I helped to dress her in the morning, attend to her left foot which she almost lost to gangrene. But we managed to heal it and she only lost her left big toe. She was still able to walk albeit with a walking chair. I loved to bake so I would make special desserts for her which she was allowed small portions. It was a great activity for us to bond together. She could watch me make it and give me tips. In college, I became a Caregiver for a quadriplegic man. Although, I didn't have experience caring for a paralyzed man, Michael told me he would explain what he needed on the job. My morning shift started at 7AM and I bathed his nude body, medicated his bedsores, emptied his catheter, performed physical therapy, and fed him his breakfast. If he had chores to complete during my shift, I'd dress him then move him from his bed to his wheelchair and into in his van. Once we finished his chores, I would put him back in his bed, remove his clothing, and clean his apartment.
My name is Guadalupe Villanueva, am 38 years old! I have been a CNA since 2000 i have always enjoyed being around the elderly, but i never knew there was a career about it until i moved to Austin , soon I started working at New Hope Manor where i had the opportunity to work hands on training!! I loved it, and then I started working as a Restorative Aide at a Nursing Home where i was working under the supervision of physical and occupational therapist I really enjoyed this job, cause it gave me a lot of satisfaction seeing my patients progress and being more independent!! I have also worked at the Alzheimer's units for 2 years , and Now I work as a Medication Technician and have really enjoyed what i have learned in one year, but it really doesn't fill my need of enjoying a good talk with them which is what enjoy the most, they have a lot to share!!
Hi my name is Pati! I have 34 years experience in the healthcare field which include nusing facilities, group homes and homecare. My expertise is my compassion heart , patience and of course my great sense of humor. I became a nurses aid at the age of 19 and never looked back. I am the happiest when i'm helping others and i feel i'm very good at it. I believe my most personal achievement was having the privilege of assisting the victims of hurricane Katrina, the ARC allowed me to help and encourage those who needed my assistance.
I'm great at what I do because I'm extremely patient and have a sense of humor. I understand the importance of taking my time and taking care of people as if they were my own family. I enjoy helping others and can only hope that when it's my time, some one cares for me the way that I have cared for my patients in the past.

At the age of 15 my grandmother became ill and my grandfather needed some help so he wouldn't have to take an early retirement. The loved she had shown when she was well it was nice to give back. Since 1985 I have taken care grandmother, grandfather, father, mother and two other love ones. I just think it's a joy to be able to give back in time of need. I love talking with my elders they have so much to tell and share. Sitting there watching the smile of appreciation from anyone you help is so rewarding. I always believe what you do for others someone will do the same for you.
