About Katherine

I have always enjoyed working with people and have missed that since retiring from nursing a few years ago. I love getting to know people, finding out their interests and hearing their life stories. I am an upbeat and friendly person and find great joy in being of assistance to others in ways that improve their quality of life and happiness. I grew up in a big family and value those special relationships. I realize a lot of people don't have a big family to rely on and I'm here to help fill that need. (I didn't see a place to mention this, but I am also available to help with your pets.)

I became a caregiver because I did not want to work in main stream Healthcare anymore. My passion is helping seniors the way they and their family's want to be cared for without Healthcare systems making the choices for their care. I worked as a physical therapy assistant for 27 years. The last 8 were in a rehabilitation department at a skilled nursing facility. I have enjoyed the last 9 years doing private home care as a caregiver. Helping individuals live their lives with dignity, safety and loving care.

I am joining CareLinx specifically to allow me to take time off from teaching to care for my father, who is facing an aggressive cancer diagnosis and has declined treatment in favor of better quality of life for the remainder of his life. My priorities in providing care for him include: * support his physical safety in transferring and getting around the apartment * provide anti-inflammatory, protein-rich, and emotionally enjoyable fresh food * apply all of my knowledge as a teacher and musician in supporting his physical and occupational therapy, to help him regain as much mobility as possible * listen and ensure there is space for his emotional experience, that he can make choices when he wants to, that he can do things for himself as much as his strength allows him to safely * patiently supporting his getting re-oriented after a six-week ordeal in hospitals & rehabs, and reconnecting with things that are important to him
