About Kerry

I worked for nearly 20 years in accounting and clerical jobs. I had an opportunity to be a caregiver for a 98 year old man that did not want to go to the nursing home. I took the job and fell in love! I went and got my CNA, NAII and Medication Administration licenses. I have spent many years doing in home care and have also worked in facilities. Being a caregiver is not just a job. You have to love this work to do it and do it well. I enjoy helping people and especially if it means they can stay in their own home and not have to go to assisted living or a nursing home. I always strive to care for my clients just like I would care for my own grand parents. Respect and dignity are everything. Alzheimer's patients are my favorite. They take a lot of patience and creativity. You have to think outside the box when you work with them.
