About Kathleen

Hi I prefer Kathy, but you can call me Kathleen. I like to think I am very patient with all types of individuals and am compassionate. I have a strong desire to help people and especially those who are really young or elderly. I am looking to help people in need of care from daily functions and tasks. I have always had a burning desire to help others which is why I studied psychology and counseling. My experience consists of having cared for infants and toddlers. I have also interned at a retirement home where I visited many elderly, engaged them in exercise and activities, and shared stories. I would love the opportunity to care for the elderly. I enjoy listening to stories from them and getting insight into their lives as well as learn life lessons. Caring for someone in need is the most rewarding fulfilling feeling for me.

Having compassion for the one's who you care for helping them keep dignity and pride in letting them be a part of their care in making decisions of their care. I became a caregiver to help others help themselves when they no longer can or their physical or mental ability no longer allows them to do so.I care about people and think everyone should be comfortable and feel safe. I'm proud when the person and family feel good about the care they receive and that they know that their love ones are safe and taken care of.
