About Kristie

I am 2nd generation caregiver, my mom was a caregiver her whole like so I grew up around it. I started out on the fire department in Halifax but really became more interested in the medical part. My mom called me and told me there was an opening taking care of the lady she was taking care of. A lot of people think caregiving is easy but some days it can be quite challenging. You must be patient with older people, be considerate and caring.

Mary Perkinson - Private patient
I took care of Mary Perkinson, she was 84 years old. I bathed her took her on walks, did grocery shopping, housekeeping meal prep, blood pressure, medications and oxygen, brushing teeth and hair. I would take her on small walks in the house and we would talk about everything. I just recently lost my mother and father which me and my sister took care of them( all needs, medication pulse and blood pressure).
