About Kimberly

Hello, I have been in the health care for 10 years off and on. I remember when I was young my grandmother was a home health aide and I would go with her to the patients house and would watch her and how she was with her patients. I remember thinking, that's what I want to do. I started In 2009 and for the past couple years I took a break from it due to financial reasons. I don't believe you can stay in home health for the money, because we all know home health aides are the lowest paid. I believe you have to love what you do and have a caring heart. Staying in home health for as long as I did is due to me loving what I did and now that I am unemployed, I want to jump back in to my calling.

HI there. I seem to always remind people of someone else. I smile a LOT. And love conversation BUT... that does not mean I talk a LOT either. Some of my clients are more on the quiet side and I "go" with that. People are interesting. EVERYONE has a story to tell and of course, everyone's story is unique. Sometimes my client and I will go into the kitchen and cook or bake and some clients HATE to be in the kitchen. Do you love to take walks? How about drive around and "see the sights"? Ahhh... how about this--- a great game of Dominos? OK.. you don't like those? No problem. I love crafts... how about taking great pictures? Are you a camera buff? Can you sing? Play a musical instrument? I was a piano and french horn major in college. Well.. maybe you are more of a reader. OH YES! I love to read! One of my favorite hobbies -- love to read especially Reader's Digest or.. how about this one, "This Ole House".. or a gardening book? You love animals? So do I. Maybe you need a haircut. I have cut my client's hair because they can't get out. Just in case you are wondering....... no.... never have done that for a living-was never trained in that profession but just watching others do it and I love to learn new things. Right now, reading a how-to book... on plumbing. So.. is there anything your are interested in learning? Never too old to learn new things.
