Hi! My name is Kathie. I have been caregiving one way or another most of my life & I believe it is my calling. After my parents passed away ( my best friends), I became a Certified Nursing Assistant & began working in a nursing home, which included all levels of Care, such as Long Term Care, Short Term Care,Rehabilitation, Alzheimers, Independent & Assisted Living. I felt I had something special to offer to those in need of assistance, whether it be with a little help, or alot. I have been on both sides of what families are going through & know how important it is to find the best help possible. I really enjoy interacting with people of all ages, & the one on one aspect of Home Health Care. If you'd like to know more about me, or check out my references, please reach out & contact me.
