About Kathleen

DEDICATED, CALM, AND LOVING I have been caring professionally for seniors for five years and make a commitment each day to meeting my clients with respect, understanding and a good measure of laughter. I am a life long learner and am always seeking to expand my knowledge of how to provide my clients with the very best care. I tailor my services to the changing and unique needs of each individual. My clients know that I care. I take great delight in the relationships that evolve from the giving and receiving inherent in this work. I would love to hear more about your care needs and answer any questions you may have for me. At your request, I will provide my resume and other pertinent certifications. I have excellent references, both professional and personal. With warm regards, Kathleen
