About Kathleen

What attracted me to become a caregiver was my Mother in law. I had a thriving Janitorial cleaning service that did very well. When she was giving the diagnoses my husband and I moved her in with us. In 4 years the mental disease Dementia took over quickly. I knew cleaning buildings and homes is not what I was put here to do. I took care of her until she passed and I became a caregiver shortly after.

My job is to taking care of indivuals with disabilities. Including: Bathing, distribution of medications, Dressing bed striken with a lift and or mobile individuals with physically disabilities. What made me change my professional career to becoming a caregiver was my Mother in-Law. She became mentally ill. Dementia took over fast and she passed away. After she died I closed my cleaning business and went into the medical feild. I have a true passion for those that can not do for themselves. Disability can be the lifestyle of many. I would love the opportunity to make a difference in there lives.

I am a 36 year old CNA and mother of three,I became a caregiver because I love helping others and caring for those who can't perform or need assistance with their daily activities. When I was a young girl my mother was diagnosed with MS and my siblings and I were responsible for helping her with her daily activities and from that moment forward I knew that was my calling. In the past I have taken care of several loved ones and others until they're last moment here and thats what I feel like I am here to do, its my passion.
