About Cathy

I feel I am a natural caregiver. I am both sympathetic and empathetic, and relate easily to folks of all ages. I was a member of the pastoral care team several years ago at Highland park United Methodist Church, and put those skills to good use when my mother required full time care towards the end of her life. I now take care of one of my mother's best friends [97 years old] once or twice a week, depending on the need, and work with her children as an extra set of eyes to make sure she receives the best care possible. Sometimes we go out in the car for excursions and I have also taken her to doctor's visits when her family needs my help. Evelyn suffered from depression for years and had a difficult relationship with her daughter. I believe my therapeutic talks with her about her attitude towards life changed her into a more loving and accepting person.
