About Cathrine

I have never considered working as a caregiver a "job" that I go to everyday. It's my passion and I enjoy greatly working with those who need personal care in any given situation. It takes a special kind of person to be a caregiver; qualities that I possess are compassion, empathy, patience, being a good listener, motivating and being a positive person! What I love about caregiving is providing reassurance to the family and the patient that their loved one is comfortable, content and peaceful. Respecting the families wishes and knowing that they are putting their trust in me makes me go the extra mile.
