About Kathie

I'm a very caring person who enjoys the company of the Elderly. Also I'm very patient. I had the personal experience of taking care of my mother for 12 years. She had two open heart surgeries, stroke, broken hip, CHF and worked daily with Hospice for over a year. She had wounds on her legs (due to edema) that I had to tend to every day. I fed, bathed and dressed her. I also was a caregiver for two of my friends Mothers of which Hospice was involved also. I wish I would have gone into the Health field as I believe I would have made a difference.

I genuinely love taking care of people. I've always wanted to do this my whole life. My learned patience from years of working with the elderly and the mentally disabled, I believe has contributed to my continued success as a caregiver.

I have worked with mainly elderly patients in ophthalmology for 32 years. I have become very close to to alot of my patients. I became close friends with an elderly neighbor who had no family in this country. I took her to her doctor appointments and was with her when she passed away. I am still very close to some of the patients who I worked with. I have helped with my mother's care when I have visited her in Florida where she lives with my sister. She requires help walking and also showering. She and I love to play cards! I am also a CASA volunteer.
